Cpl. Clay Iiams, a volunteer firefighter with Township 6 in Carolina Pines, N.C., climbs the Stairmaster in full gear at Devil Dog Gym at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., Sept. 11. Iiams was simulating climbing the steps of the World Trade Center to pay tribute to firefighters who responded to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 on the 11th anniversary of the national tragedy. “I just don’t want those guys to be forgotten,” Iiams said. “Three hundred forty-three of them ran into absolute hell in hopes of saving people.” Iiams, an ordnance technician with Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 14 at Cherry Point, is a native of Fayetteville, Ark.
