ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Two retired New York city firefighters who survived the 9-11 attacks will spend time with them as well.

Warren Forsyth and Tommy Feaser toured the Albany Fire Department headquarters this afternoon and spoke to school groups.

They lost 300 friends and co-workers in the September 11 attacks on the Twin Towers.

Now they want to show their support for the wounded soldiers fighting for America.

Retired NYC firefighter Warren Forsyth said "they are fighting to payback what happened on September 11th in New York City. We feel these are the people who caused this problem, and they are going to straighten it out for us. And make sure it doesn't happen again."

Retired NYC firefighter Tommy Feaser said "They are the guys that are going to have to finish this. And take care of business. And that's what they've been doing."

Several plantations in the Edison and Leary area will host the wounded troops for the Purple Heart Outdoor tour quail hunt Saturday.
