Click each photo to learn about these heroes and their service to the region
Some of the bravest and best people in the world wear the Port Authority uniform and badge, delivering babies, defibrillating ailing hearts, pulling people from car wrecks and preventing people from taking their lives. Yet for every story of heroism that we read or watch on television, there are countless unsung heroes who perform quiet acts of service everyday that don’t draw much attention, but make a big difference in people’s lives. In this photo gallery, Portfolio celebrates the singular acts of service of just a few heroes, but we are saying thank you to all the special men and women who protected this region and placed their lives on the line for us in 2015.
