The Veterans of Foreign War Post 1913 and those who will never forget, gathered together Tuesday morning for a memorial service in honor of those who lost their lives in a terror attack on the United States on September 11, 2001.
Richard Stanley, Director of Kentucky Veterans Cemetery West and VFW member, says the day is about remembering those who senselessly lost their lives, and the heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice while trying to save others.
He says he was stationed at Fort Campbell when the towers fell and says he remembers how swiftly they acted to bring those who committed the atrocity to justice.
Stanley says the United States rallied together that day and still stands united against those who would bring terror to our shores.
Taps was played in honor of the fallen and the crowd released red, white and blue balloons. Many people remember where they were that day when the United States changed forever and Stanley encouraged attendees to make sure their children and grandchildren know how terrible that day was and how great the country is.
