Military and Veteran Services encourages everyone in remembering 9/11

Wichita State’s Military and Veteran Services encourages everyone to take time today to pause for a moment of silence in honor of those who sacrificed so much, who inspired a multitude to service, and who strengthened the spirit of unity as a nation, and will have a banner in 105 Grace Wilke Hall that members of the community can sign acknowledging that they will not forget. The center will be open all day.

Each year on the anniversary of 9/11, the families of victims gather for a ceremony on the 9/11 Memorial Plaza to read aloud the names of the 2,983 men, women and children killed in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and Feb. 26, 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Six moments of silence mark the times when each of the World Trade Center towers was struck, when each tower fell, and the times corresponding to the attack at the Pentagon, and the crash of United Airlines Flight 93 in Pennsylvania.
