This donation will Honor NYPD Sgt. David Yu and Christopher Dolan

Granite State Gripping and the Wu Tang / American Saga Grip Crew has nominated one of our own to participate in the Tunnel To Towers Foundation’s Tower Climb. United States Air Force Veteran Nelson Rivera will be climbing the 104 floors of the tower in honor of his Uncle Sgt. David Yu, and also in memory of John Dolan’s brother Christopher Dolan.

David was a proud member of his NYC community. He loved his country and his family. An American hero and patriot, David Yu passed away tragically from 9/11 cancer that he developed after heroically providing direct support and aid at Ground Zero after the 9/11 terror attacks. David enlisted in the United States Army in 1987 and served honorably for 26 years.  While serving, he conducted a combat tour in Iraq from 2002-2003 and retired from the Army in May 2014.

In 1996 David joined the NYPD 1996 where he was assigned to 103rd Precinct and served the south Jamaica community both on patrol and community affairs.  On August 2, 2011, he was promoted to Sergeant and was assigned to Strategic Response Group 4.  He retired from the NYPD in 2017. 

Chris was a Motion Picture Electrician and union member of Local #52 IATSE NYC for 42 years. He worked on movies like Wall Street and Black Rain in his younger years and later, on TV shows such as OZ, Damages and more recently as a member of the Wu-Tang / American Saga family. The Dolan family has steadfastly supported the Tunnel To Towers Foundation not only as patriots of their country but also all of those who gave their lives to preserve it. 

These two gentlemen were undoubtedly patriots at heart, and bled Red White and Blue. The only thing they loved more than their Country was their families and those that helped make the USA more than just their country of residence, but a home. It would mean a great deal to the friends and families of these two fine gentlemen if we could come together and show our support not only for them, but for the other countless individuals who rose to the nations call. Showing our support in what this climb is all about speaks volumes to everyone who has played a part. Whether that be making a donation to the foundation, participating in the event, or simply just flying a flag outside your home. We are all proud to be Americans, just as these two men were.
