USAFA 9/11 Memorial Ceremony

On Friday last week the Academy had a 9/11 Memorial Ceremony to remember and honor those who lost their lives.

The 9/11 Memorial Ceremony took place on the Terrazzo with a wreath laying ceremony which is conducted each year and afterwards the Cadets take part in a silent formation.

"The memorial incorporates an actual girder from the World Trade Center. The memorial features two granite slabs, representing the Twin Towers, atop a five-sided foundation that represents the Pentagon. The words, "World Trade Center," "The Pentagon" and "Shanksville, Pa." are etched onto the memorial... Dedicated on September 9, 2011, as part of the Class of 1976's 35th reunion class giving project."
