Capt. Vincent F. Giammona was the master of FUN, the person who could always make you laugh ... even when you wanted to cry. He brought out the best in people. He was the BRAVEST person I knew. He was a SUPER HERO. He was the son of a saint (Saint Dotty). He was the son of a CAPT. (FDNY Capt. Vincent Giammona, a saint also). He was the son of the city ... NYC (his favorite place in the world)--and he was also my friend, and I miss him. Know that he lived life to it's fullest; he drank in every moment and made the most out of his life (though it was cut too short). If you knew him, you were lucky to have known him.... If you didn't know him, you missed out on quite a guy!

To the family and friends of Capt. Vincent Francis Giammona,

I would just like to extend my thoughts and prayers to all those who were touched by knowing Capt. Vincent. I never met him, but I had the honor of reading his name at this year's ceremony. I was extremely proud to do so, and I feel that this will forever connect us.

John Darcy, Sq-18 F.D.N.Y.

I first noticed Vincent's name a few years ago but was unable to leave any message. My mother's family name is Giammona--my grandfather was Antonio Giammona, and they came through Ellis Island and settled in Michigan. He had many brothers, most of whose names I do not remember, but the few that I do are John, Peter, Sam, etc. He relocated to California around 1915. We were wondering if Vincent was one of our family, and if so, we would like to donate something to his memorial. On the 7th anniversary of this tragedy, may God continue to give you all strength and comfort knowing that he was a brave and caring man. Regardless of whether or not he is related to our Giammona clan, we all send you our deepest sympathies. If you would like to respond, please feel free to contact me at vlcampbell50 (at) sbcglobal (dot) net. Thank you.

Captain Vincent F. Giammona, FDNY (9/11/61 – 9/11/01)

45 years ago today, Mom and Dad smiled with joy when you were born.

20 years ago, we stood with pride when you became one of NY’s Bravest.

And over the years, you became our current events comedian, rhythmically-challenged bartender, friend to the forgotten, outlaw of time, master of persuasion, true “Brave Heart” and steadfast patriot. So, no matter how many years pass, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to FORGET YOU, VINNY G. Till we meet again, you will be forever young and forever in our hearts.

Mom, Dad, Louise, Steven and Linda

Post your memorial thoughts:

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!

9-11Heroes.us is a personal effort, not a business, nor is the site dedicated to any specific person or persons. We will not post negative comments. Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner. We are maintaining this site with our own money and time. We try to keep the advertisements to a minimum and we try to make them as unobtrusive as possible. The revenue goes back to maintaining this site.

Thank you for your understanding in these matters.
