Now my own community is stepping up to proudly honor the price that was paid that day by so many hero's and a piece of the World Trade Center will be a part of our town center near the fire station. I am proud to be a part of this military community, where my husband once served as a Marine in the Corp. Our fire chief applied two years ago to have one of the steel beams and we are honored to receive it. The 13 foot, more than 10,000 pound beam will be the centerpiece of memorial that will be constructed in time for next years anniversary but it will be unveiled this coming Sunday in honor of the 10th anniverary.
A dozen members of the Havelock Police Department and the Patriot Guard Riders lead a flatbed truck with a 10.800-pound piece of steel from the World Trade Center from Tandemloc to Havelock City Hall on Tuesday morning in Havelock. The steel piece will be part of a 16-foot tall memorial in honor of victims of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
About 100 people watched Tuesday as the World Trade Center artifact was lowered into place near the Harrier display as part of Havelock's new 9/11 memorial.
The 10,800-pound World Trade Center artifact is mounted low enough to be touched by those who visit the 9/11 memorial in Havelock. The piece will be shrouded until Sunday morning when it will be unveiled again for the 10th anniversary observance ceremony starting at 8 a.m.
How will you and your community honor the 10th anniversary of 9/11?
