At Terminal 4, we are continuously striving to find new ways to show our appreciation for our employees. Our series,  Humans of T4 takes pride in honoring all employees who work in the terminal by highlighting inspirational and heartwarming stories of those who make up the T4 family. We invite you to follow along! 

Lance Bryer- TSA

For Lance, T4 is the melting pot of JFK. 

After 9/11, Lance Bryer signed up for the then newly formed TSA and has been at T4 for 12 years. “I saw the direct cause of what transportation failure does. I was activated down to Ground Zero as a military police officer. I worked down at the morgue and was also down in the pit digging, " he shares. "After I came off active duty, TSA was formed and that’s how I ended up at JFK. I like to explain to my employees about 9/11 and why we’re here."

Bryer's dedication is admirable. "As someone in the military, there are certain holidays that I make sure not to take off. On Veteran’s Day I go celebrate and march in the parade. However, on Memorial Day and 9/11 I’m always here. I want to make sure during these key holiday’s that my employees are aware of why they’re working and what we stand for.” he says.
