Capt. Patrick Sobota of Ladder Company 156 in Brooklyn made history today with a visit to the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site. He became the two millionth visitor to cross the threshold of the 20 Vesey St. storefront, where people can learn more about the 9/11 Memorial and the 9/11 Memorial Museum. It was the first time he visited the preview site, which opened in August 2009. 

Sobota helped the preview site reach the milestone in a visit with his wife, Maria, and their 13-year-old twins, Lauren and P.J.
