The tenth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks was remembered in Juneau on Sunday. Vehicles from Capital City Fire and Rescue, including a ladder track with a large American Flag hung from the end of an extended ladder, and local Harley Davidson owners lined one side of Riverside Drive as firefighters, police officers, and others congregated at Riverside Rotary Park. That’s the site of a flag pole memorial, in the shape of a pentagon, that’s meant to commemorate the victims of the attacks in New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania.
Here are some of the sounds of Sunday’s service, conducted during the times that the twin towers of the World Trade Center fell ten years ago.
Participants of the service included Capital City and Fire Rescue Chaplin Sam Dalin, singer Siara Kelly, Brent Fischer of the Civil Air Patrol who recounted the significance of the memorial and how it was created, Officer Chris Gifford of the Juneau Police Department, firefighter Charlie Blattner, Juneau Rotarian Carl Ferlauto, and a single piper from Stroller White Pipes and Drums.
