Due to the immediate need to fill spots of officers missing during the week of 9/11, the FDNY promoted members. In respect to those still missing at the time, those who were on the ********* list, but were missing, were promoted as 9/10/01... the day before the attack.

These promotions helped show that we still had hope that those missing would be found, and allowed the families to have a little more in their missing heroes paychecks during the wait.
