The nation changed forever on September 11, 2001. Terrorist attacks causing tragic loss of life at the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in sight of the nation’s capital, and a quiet field in southern Pennsylvania led to conversations and reflection on American identity, patriotism, security, and service that resonate today.
Sometimes called “Patriots Day” or “Day of Remembrance”, September 11 has become an annual day for many Americans to remember, reflect, honor, and mourn. 2,997 people died during the September 11 attacks. Thousands more were injured. Among the dead were 343 firefighters and 72 law enforcement officers.
A brief remembrance event will be held at the Marshalltown Police-Fire building located at 909 South 2nd Street on Monday, September 11 beginning at 7:40am. The public is invited to attend. Parking is available in the front and in the back of the police-fire building.
