Anthony P. Infante- 47, worked as a police inspector at the Port Authority of NY & NJ and was @ WTC. He became a cadet with the Newark Police Department when he was 18. He went to college and graduate school. He got back into shape to run in the New York City Marathon, after missing it for a few years. Getting back into his marathon shape was probably very useful as he was helping victims in the Trade Center. #911 #project2996
