UFA President Gerard Fitzgerald Comments on Passing of Retired Marine Engineer John Buhler

NEW YORK CITY – Today, UFA President Gerard Fitzgerald made the following comments on the death of Rt. Marine Engineer John L. Buhler from 9-11-related cancers:

"On behalf of the membership, our sincerest sympathies are extended to the family and friends of Rt. Marine Engineer John L. Buhler, Company 6, due to 9/11-related illness. He was a courageous leader and always had a positive attitude. We will lay Marine Engineer Buhler to rest tomorrow.

Unfortunately, his death marks the eighth passing this year and is another tragic reminder that more than 16 years after the 9/11 attacks, hundreds of first responders continue to suffer from illness and cancer as a result of their selflessness during the immediate rescue and recovery efforts."
