Chief Scott Bowen said at noon on Tuesday, at City Hall, the department will hold the special ceremony featuring country music entertainer Daryle Singletary singing the National Anthem and Dr. Paul Stumb, dean and professor in the Labry School of Business & Technology at Cumberland University, giving the keynote speech. Stumb is also a retired cryptology officer from the U.S. Navy and Naval Reserves.This is one of those days that we should never forget, the people who lost their lives and the police and firemen who were lost, Bowen said.
From Post staff reports
Here is a reminder that U.S. Flags should be flown at half-staff on Tuesday, Sept. 11 in honor of those who were injured and those who lost their lives on this same date in 2001 in the terrorist attacks against this country.
The websitewww.timeanddate.comhas information regarding the observance of Patriot Day.Many will remember where they were and what they were doing that day 11 years ago when terrorists who were members of an Islamist militant group known as al-Qaeda hijacked four airplanes, forcing two of them to crash into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and one of them into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Passengers on another plane fought against the hijackers and forced the plane to crash in a field in Shanksville, Penn.
