Today the Brewer School Department held two flag raising ceremonies, one at each school, led by our AFJROTC cadets. Sergeant Tony Campbell read the following in remembrance of those that gave their lives on 9/11/01.
“On 11 September 2001 in the early morning as flights were taking off from various airports, four groups of terrorists took control of several flights. American Airlines flight 11 and United Airlines flight 175 were diverted and flown into the North and South World Trade Center Towers. American Airlines flight 93 was headed for Washington DC but several brave Patriots overwhelmed the terrorists and crashed the plane in a field outside Stony Creek Township in Pennsylvania. On that day 2,997 people lost their lives and over 6,000 were injured. So today we pause to pay tribute on this the 16th anniversary of that horrific day that did not weaken America, it only made us STRONGER! Color Guard, Raise the Colors!”
