Lieutenant Daniel O’Callaghan of Ladder 4 was promoted to Captain on September 10, 2011. He had two young children at home and when he worked a 24-hour shift, he left post-it notes throughout the house for his family to find with smiley faces and sweet notes written on them. His wife wrote that he always carried a prayer card in his pocket with a book of matches stapled to it. It was his “lucky charm,” but on 9/11 he left it behind. In March of 2012, he and his men were recovered in the ruins of the South Tower.
