The crowd at the ceremony was small but dedicated.
Craig Guthrie, retired Navy Reserve, played “Taps” at 8:46 a.m. for the strike on the
World Trade Center North Tower, 9:03 a.m. for the strike on the World Trade Center
South Tower, 9:37 a.m. for the Pentagon strike and 10:03 a.m. for those who perished
on Flight 93 in the Shanksville, Pennsylvania crash.
Navy veteran Fred Hill said he’d been on his way into town to pick up building supplies
for a shed when he heard about the 9/11 attacks. “We didn’t see the horrible
images for two, three days later, but just the news was enough to put everything on
hold,” Hill said.
Each time a crash was marked by the playing of “Taps,” the VFW Post 7059 honored the victims of 9/11 with a
VFW members wore yellow ribbons at the remembrance
ceremony in honor of those who died on 9/11.
