Michael F. Cammarata

Michael F. Cammarata was a New York City firefighter from Staten Island, at 22 the youngest firefighter to die in the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attack. After scoring a perfect score on the written and physical exams, he was sworn in as a firefighter and assigned to Ladder Company 11 on East Second Street in June, 2001. His fellow firefighters called him "The Face" for his good looks.

He died while on duty in the collapse of the World Trade Center. He was last seen going into the Marriott World Trade Center Hotel.

His remains were not found by the time of his funeral on June 7, 2003. A vial of his donated blood was buried with personal effects.

At the funeral Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that rescue personnel should be particularly identified in any memorial, so that any visitor "be able to read their names, know what they did, appreciate their heroism, be inspired by their sacrifice and ensure they are designated as role models for the next generation who will protect us all."
