Heads were bowed and heavy with emotion as more names of fallen firefighters were added recently to the FDNY 9/11 memorial wall. 343 firefighters lost their lives in the 2001 terror attacks, but there are an additional 182 names that have been added since then. They are firefighters who died from 9/11 illnesses they contracted while working at ground zero. Credit: Fox, Getty Images
