I'M SO GLAD I HAD THE CHANCE TO KNOW YOU. I'LL NEVER FORGET YOU GLEN. THAT SMILEIS BURNED INTO MY HEART.

I first met Glenn in the Academy. I was a recruit and he was assigned to the video unit. I have to say that the world is at a huge loss without Glenn. He was one of the most beautiful people one can ever meet. God took Glenn from us because he needed him up there. Later Glenn.

Glen was a wonderful person who would stop what he was doing to help anyone. A volunteer firefighter, co-worker and freind. He is not forgotten.
— James Luning

Glenn was my co-worker, partner and friend. Since 911 I haven't had much strength to talk about how I was with him that tragic day in September and how my first scare was his driving Scotty and I there in the units cruiser, making sure to, put it lightly, get there quickly. Maybe we got there too quickly! Glen, I miss you lots brother. I've read the things Ann Marie wrote and it brought back some great memories. I'll see you again my friend. And I hope Ann Marie sees this and remembers I'm still alive and looking to contact her too. Sleep peaceful my brother, til we meet again. And hopefully they didn't give you a car up there. Your Buddy, Johnny M. 5/16/04

Glenn and I met while I in college and then it turned out that he and his family banked at the bank I worked at during graduate school, so I saw him often. He always had a smile and quick wit. I would tease him about the three or so beepers he wore so that he could be the first photographer at the scene of an accident/emergency. He was a good guy. I found out about his passing through the college alumni newsletter. I was shocked of course, and heartbroken for his family. My thoughts go out to his family and his NYPD family. What a loss...
— Jackie

Glen Petitt was a good guy. He was a good person, a good cop, and always willing to learn. I was a cop assigned to the 10th precinct when Glen was a rookie. He loved to work, and was always willing to to help someone else. Glen Petitt was a very, very special person.

I never had the pleasure to meet Officer Glen Pettit but I did meet his Uncle(also retired nypd) in Orlando FLA on 04/15/06. Officer Pettit's name and everyone else on this web site will never be forgotten with people like Officer Pettit's family spreading the word of this web site. Aweb site to remember. God Bless!

Glen was always on the go but never hesitated to stop and chat with a friend. He could always tell when someone needed a smile and never failed to provide one. He will always be remembered.

I came across a dollar bill during my travels in Las Vegas and southern Utah regarding this website dated 02.10.06 with a zip code of 11514. I would like to thank the person who started this as I will circulate the dollar hoping it continues to make people aware of our NYPD Angels. Although I did not know PO Pettit I now feel I do - Evan zip code 11003

I too received a dollar bill with Officer Glen K. Pettit's name on it. I rec'd it as change in King of Prussia, PA 19406 on 8-20-2006. The bill struck a chord within me because my brother, Matthew, is a survivor of the North Tower. He was on the 65th Floor when the first plan hit. From 9:15am to 3:00pm I thought I lost my brother. I thank God every day for saving his life and pray ever day for those lost and especially for the heroes like Officer Pettit who laid down his life to save others. God Bless You Officer Pettit.

I remeber Glenn from the BOCES bus in HS (186 to base!!) I will never forget how he always had a kind word for everyone, and always seemed to offer a hand to anyone he could. Gone but never forgotten. Thank you.

-What an interesting photo P.O. Petit has on the site next to his story.It is very spiritual, the picture of an angel. Is he dressed this way??? I really love that photo he has of an angel next to his story. It is really unique-- again, is he part of a NYPD team that may dress this way or is that him dressed like an angel? What a photo.

I worked a part time job with Glen for the town of Islip at Lake Ronkonkoma, I had just retired as a Captain with the NYC Dept of Corrections.

I own a small bakery in Port Washington, NY. I recieved a dollar bill with "never forget P.O. Glen K. Pettit 9/11/01" on it. This lead me to this website that I think is great. We all must remember this day forever. I was working in NYC on Sept.11.01 at a hotel in midtown manhattan, the day was so unreal it was like a movie was playing out..but it was real very real. Cantor Fitzgerled had their crisis center in our hotel...no one surved from that firm. I walked into the ballroom of the hotel to bring sandwiches for the peaple that gathered thier and I was overtaken by all of the pictures of missing peaple all around me. Then it sank in that these are mothers and fathers sons and daughters..and they are all gone. Later that week we all went down to ground zero to feed the police, fireman, iron workers and other rescue men and women. The looks on their faces on determination to find survivers was unbeliveable. It is amazing was we as humans can do when we are determined. No race,no prejudice no religion just one goal to find our lost bothers and sisters. I think its amazing how police and fireman can just put themselves in harms way with out even thing of the consequences of something going wrong. God bless all that gave all thay had and then some...you will all never will be forgoten. I never knew Officer Glen Pettit but he sounds like regular good guy, everybody's friend just following his dream and doing his job, putting himself last and everyone else first..... may God bless you Glen THX Mike

I was priviledged to work with Glen at News 12. I remember walking through Penn Station one day, long after I had left and Glen had gone on to work for the NYPD. I heard him call my name and I knew without even looking, it was him. He gave me a big hug and we spoken for just a few minutes. He was a wonderful soul and I was glad to know him. Rest in Peace, friend. You will never be forgotten.

I met Glen when I was a brand new volunteer fireman. I watched as he worked for News 12 and then the NYPD. He was a great person. His picture, along with John Napolitano's is now in my patrol vehicle and they ride with me everyday. I like to think of it as them watching over me on a day to day basis and making sure I come home every night. There isn't a day I don't think of you both.

I knew Glen- he used to freelance for the newspaper I worked for till 1999. I left, and moved away from NY. On the 5th Anniversary of 9/11, my company gave out buttons- each with a victims name. I blindly picked Glen's button. I was shocked and still am that of all the buttons, I picked his. He is in my thoughts frequently, and especially today.

Hello, I never met Officer Petit, I was serving on the USS Theodore Roosevelt(CVN 71) we were the first to deploy after 9/11. We would receive mail for people thanking us for striking back after 9/11. There was a letter to us from a friend of Glen Petit. I never forgot the letter even though it is almost 10 years ago. He was a volunteer firefighter from Long Island. He said that Officer Pettit was a close friend of his. He told about how he was in the towers when it went down. He told about how they were going to have a memorial service for him. He made us know his friend. I cried while I read that letter, I decided in honor of Officer Pettit to write his name on a bombs that were going to Afghanistan. I went up and took black magic markers and wrote his name on several bombs and took a picture. Years later I was talking to someone and telling him the story he started crying and asked to see the picture. I had mistakenly written In memory of Police Officer James Petit, you are missed. He said that was a close friend and corrected his name being Glan and not James. Then thanked me for thinking about his friend and writing his name on bombs to Afghanistan.

I met Glen when I was working in the Police Academy. Glen was always seen throughout the building, especially on the fourth floor where his office was. It was nice to stop and talk to Glen to find out what he was up to. He had a very kind heart and would go out of his way for anyone. When I asked him if he could get me a video he said he could. The next day it was on my desk. That's just the kind of person Glen was and who I keep within my heart. We parted ways that day and never did I think it would be our last encounter. Until we meet again Glen. I'll never forget you.

9/11 Memorial Bracelet. I bought 2 bracelets shortly after 9/11. I didnt request a certain person..one was Stephen LaMancia of Cantor Fitzerald and I have since contacted his family and after 11 yrs of wearing this bracelet, have returned it to his family. My second bracelet belongs to Glen K. Pettit NYPD. I wore both of them for a full year after 9/11 and then on the anniversary each year for a full day. I guess that I feel that if his family would like to have this, I will send it to you. I am a genuine person, with a heart. You may go to Stephen's site as well to see that I am very honest and this is not a hoax by any means. If you would like to have this bracelet as well, please just contact me. Thank you and Bless you Barbara

I do not know Office Glen Pettit either but received a dollar bill with his information on it as well that led me to this website. I believe I received this dollar when given change from a purchase in Westbury, NY. This shows how the world comes full circle as I was there for 9-11 and worked on Fulton Street, a block away from the towers. I will never forget that day as if it happened yesterday nor anyone who helped in anyway including Office Pettit. People may be gone but their spirits are never forgotten...

I did not know officer Glen Pettit. I was given change from a CVS in Huntingdon Valley Pa. with a dollar bill withthis information to never forget this angel from 9/11. We will always remember the horrific way our hero's had passed from this earth. May we never experience this again! Given to me 9/9/14 very close to that very fateful day.

Glen was a student in my Earth Science class at Ronkonkoma Junior High School. He always had a smile and a positive attitude that I will NEVER forget.

I went to the ATM this morning to take a money for my rent. I was laying across my bed going over my budget when I came across a $20 bill with writing on it. It read around the border, "Never forget NYC police officer Glen K. Pettit 09-11-01 #3815 WTC HERO NY 11514 12-02-11. 23 angels." I probably read it 5 times before I went to the website written in the corner. The reviews for the man named on this bill are tear jerking. I was in 7th grade when the attacks occurred. It was mind blowing. Something I had a difficulty in grasping. I live in Dallas, Tx & have can't even imagine where this bill stemmed from and whose hands it touched. Part of me wants to spend it so it can continue on it's journey and bring awareness to others, while the other part of me wants to keep it, because for some reason, God put in route to my ATM to come into my hands and my life. Thank you all for what you've done and may the rest of the fallen continue to rest peacefully. Larin, 9-19-14

Thank you Pettit family for putting this 1.00 bill in circulation. It has touched me deeply and brought me to tears. Thank you officer Pettit for sacrificing your life for our country!!!!He and all the people who died for our country will never be forgotten. God bless America!!

SENT BY PERSONAL MAIL AND EMAIL The Glen K. Pettit Foundation Mr. and Mrs. Thomas and Jane Wixted Ms. Tara Felice Ms. Deirdre Pettit-Kroupa Mr. Neil Pettit Mr. Thomas Wixted Mr. Joseph Wixted c/o Sands Point P.B.A. PO Box 704 Sands Point, NY 11050 The NYC Police Academy PO Glen K Pettit Memorial FOP Lodge 235 130-30 28th Ave College Point, NY 11354 718-670-9241 foplodge235@yahoo.com Dear Mrs. and Mr. Wixted and Glen's entire family, My name is Noah Talavera-Greenberg. I am writing to you to humbly introduce myself and thank you for the tremendous and unexpected honor of being awarded a scholarship in Glen's name at the Eastern-Suffolk BOCES graduation ceremony on June 11th, 2015. Because the Glen K. Pettit Memorial Scholarship is such a personal and meaningful expression of your love for Glen, I wanted to properly respect his legacy by learning as much as I could about him and his life before contacting you in this regard. I am so glad that I did. Not only was Glen a hero when faced with extraordinary circumstances, but the outporing of emotion and love from so many people whose lives he touched clearly shows that he was extraordinary in everyday life as well. The enormity of Glen's accomplishments. and how so much of his success flourished from his education at BOCES, makes my time there even more significant in retrospect. During my last two years as a student in the Media Production Program, I had no idea that I was sharing the same experiences and interests with such a good man and true hero. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn about your son, brother and friend. Thank you for this kind, generous scholarship, which will allow me to further explore a passion for the art of digital media that Glen and I have in common. I will be entering Suffolk County Community College this September and then transferring to Stony Brook University to matriculate with a B.A. major in General Theater Arts and a Digital Arts minor. As I move on in life, with the lessons I've learned at BOCES and beyond, I will think about Police Officer Glen Kerrin Pettit, his loving family and your special outreach in his name. I promise to do justice to Glen's memory by aspiring to follow in his footsteps and be the best man and most dedicated professional I can possibly be. Most importantly, I will tell people all about him so that they too can appreciate his life as I do. Thank you again for everything. Very best regards, Noah Talavera-Greenberg Westhampton Beach High School Eastern-Suffolk BOCES Digital Media and Television Production 2014-2015 Glen K. Pettit Memorial Scholarship Recipient

I don't know officer Pettit. Our condolences to officer Pettit's family and all the men & women that protect our city. We were vacationing in Turks & Caicos my children was playing with the video gaming machines and an employee gave my daughter Mackayla a us $1.00 bill for good luck not knowing she is an American and a born New Yorker. We automatically thought about the circle of life. Officer Pettit is probably Mackayla's guardian angel!
