Ground Zero: First Response on 9/11


Fordham’s Department of Military Science will be presenting a panel discussion, First Response on 9/11, on Wednesday, November 10, from 6 to 7 p.m., in the Moot Court Room 1-01 at the Fordham Law School at Lincoln Center.

The panelists will share their personal experiences as first responders to Ground Zero on 9/11:

  • Colonel (Retired) Patrick Mahaney, U.S. Army. A Special Forces officer commissioned from Fordham Army ROTC, Mahaney went onto command the Army’s Asymmetric Warfare Group and now an Adjunct Professor of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University.
  • Master Sergeant Eric Sabater, New York Army National Guard. A Fordham ROTC Cadet on 9/11, Sabater went onto a distinguished career in the New York Army National Guard and currently supports ROTC education at Fordham.
  • Mr. Matthew McDermott, Journalist. A photographer with the New York Post, McDermott will share photographs from that day.

The panel honors the legacy of 9/11 as part of the Department of Military Science’s 20-year commemoration of the attack. The event is open to all Fordham students, faculty, and staff.
