In Sherman Oaks, Fire Station 88 held a public memorial ceremony in observation of the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The site houses a 750-pound piece of the World Trade Center rubble and 100-pound piece of limestone from the Pentagon dedicated in 2004.
At the Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center, department members joined with the community and local officials to commemorate the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the fourth jetliner that crashed into a Pennsylvania field when passengers tried to take control from the hijackers.
Similar ceremonies were also held in San Pedro at the USS Iowa and at Dodger Stadium prior to the game.
In many ways, it is hard to believe that twelve years have passed since our nation was savagely attacked on September 11, 2001. While time moves forward, it in no way lessens the resolve of firefighters who loudly pledge:
We Shall Never Forget!
