On September 10, 2001 was a day like any other in America. Nobody knew that in less than 24 hours our nation would be tested in ways that few will ever see.
September 11, 2001 at 8:46am the first plane struck the world trade center starting the events that would see this nation at war for the next 17 years.
2996 people perised that day with thousands to follow in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other places around the world to make it so no American citizen would ever have to experience that pain and terror ever again.
Always remember September 11, 2001.
The Army Heritage Center Foundation and Humana Inc. invite you to join us on September 14th for a fun and educational event with school students in grades 6th – 8th at the U.S. Army Heritage Education Center.
