VIDEO: The Tower of Voices remembers the 40 lives lost after terrorists hijacked and crashed Flight 93 on Sept. 11, 2001. It welcomes visitors to the Flight 93 Memorial; a site Terry Shaffer advocated for. “It’s about these people who lost their lives,” his daughter, Rebecca Kuzar, said. The former chief of the Shanksville Volunteer Fire Department was one of the first people to respond after the plane went down on that tragic day. “I’m sure he didn’t ever expect a call like that. Never of us ever did,” firefighter Brad Shober said. As federal agencies moved in, Shaffer and his firefighters worked to collect evidence and other supportive roles in the investigation. “He was just trying to do his part. He doesn’t really talk about it a lot because he gets so emotional,” Kuzar said. Terry continued serving as the chief until a couple of years ago.
