IAM member firefighters at Lockheed Martin in Texas gathered in Dallas for the annual 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb, an emotional event aimed at honoring fallen first responders who died 16-years ago. Machinists there also raised money for an important non-profit called the Texas Line of Duty Death Task Force, an organization that provides compassionate care for families of fallen firefighters.
