Posthumous award given to FF Durrell V. Pearsall Jr. of Rescue 4, FDNY

The late FF Durrell V. Pearsall Jr. has been posthumously honored with the Order of Anthony Wayne, the highest honor bestowed by his alma mater, Valley Forge Military Academy and College, reports Accesswire.

Better known as “Bronko,” Durrell Pearsall ran into the World Trade Center as part of the FDNY’s Rescue 4, becoming one of the 343 firefighters who gave their lives during the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

He graduated from VFMAC in 1986.

The school’s president, Stuart B. Helgeson, said, “He is most deserving of this great honor as he lived a life exemplifying what he learned here by selflessly serving others throughout his career as a New York City firefighter.”
