Through Triumph & Tragedy - 50 Years of the FDNY Pipes & Drums is a documentary celebrating the 50 year history of the bagpipe band of the New York City Fire Department. What started out as a way for firefighters to celebrate their Irish heritage has become one of the most important institutions in the F.D.N.Y. After September 11, 2001 the band made it their mission to play every funeral and memorial service for the 343 members of the Fire Department that died that day. Their courage and dedication has turned the band into a globally recognized organization and a symbol of freedom and honor. Chief of Department Edward Kilduff said it best - "The FDNY Pipes & Drums are the heart and soul of the Fire Department." 1 Hour 43 Minutes. FREE SHIPPING!
