Nassau County Executive Laura Curran was recently joined by Laine Alvarez, wife of the late NYPD Bomb Squad Detective, Luis Alvarez, and leading champion for Victim Compensation Benefits Fund, for the unveiling of the County’s new 9/11 monument installed in Eisenhower Park. The unveiling took place as part of Nassau County’s 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Remembrance and Recitation of Names Ceremony at Eisenhower Park
 
The 6,500-pound, red granite monument pays tribute to the first responders who lost their lives to illness years after joining the rescue and recovery operation at ground zero in the wake of the attack on September 11, 2001 – like Det. Alvarez.  This new monument is being added to the park’s existing 9/11 Memorial which honors the 348 Nassau residents who lost their lives on 9/11 - one of the largest completed memorials to the victims of the 9/11 attacks in the nation.   
 
Following the recent unveiling of Detective Luis G. Alvarez Memorial Park in Oceanside, this monument is the latest initiative of County Executive Curran to ensure the continued sacrifice of 9/11 first responders and their families is never forgotten.
