Sept. 11 Remembrance Ceremony

Sep 11, 2018

About 200 people gathered on Arsenal Island Tuesday morning to mark the 17th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks. At the 9/11 memorial, they honored the  nearly 3,000 who died in New York, Washington DC, and near Shanksville Pennsylvania.



Soldiers and civilians in the Quad Cities shared a moment of silence today to honor Americans who lost their lives on 9/11. The Rock Island Arsenal held a remembrance ceremony on the thirteenth anniversary of the attacks.

Attendees gathered around the Arsenal 9/11 Memorial, two small towers that symbolize the Twin Towers that were struck. They paid tribute to them through prayer and song.  Gerene Phillips-Harden and Evelyn Bamar, local residents, sang the National Anthem.
