This Sunday, September 11 marks the 10-year anniversary of that fateful day when terrorists attacked New York's World Trade Center, the Pentagon in Washington DC, and rural Pennsylvania, killing nearly 3,000 people and sparking the U.S. war on terror.
Tuesday, September 11, 2001. A day that is forever burned into the hearts and minds of our nation.
HMCPL remembers and honors those who were affected by this terrible tragedy 10 years ago.
All of us old enough can recall exactly where we were when we found out about the attacks. Here are some more stories of the firefighters, survivors and heroes you'll always remember and other September 11th Memorial collections we think you'll appreciate:
