NEW YORK — The names of 22 firefighters who died of illnesses after the September 11 terror attack on the World Trade Center will be added to the Memorial Wall on Friday.

Unveiled in June 2006, the FDNY Memorial Wall honors the 343 firefighters that died serving their community that day. Since then more than 200 additional members of the department have died after becoming sick, including the 22 that are set to be honored on Friday.
