9/11 Tenth Anniversary Remembrance Service at Salvation Army
By Cheril Lee
Omaha, NE –
The Salvation Army will hold a 9/11 Tenth Anniversary Remembrance Service this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
Susan Eustice, Director of Public Relations, says the service will last half an hour and will feature several special guests including the Mayor as well as Omaha firefighters and law enforcement. She says there will be a display of emergency response vehicles including fire trucks.
The purpose of the event is to pay homage to those who lost their lives on 9/11 and honor the many people who continue to serve their country and our city. She says there will be "A big showing of first responders. And it takes us back to the days of 9/11, certainly the Salvation Army arrived within a half hour of that first plane hitting the North Tower and stayed busy and left only when the operation ended."
Sunday's service takes place at the Salvation Army Kroc Center, at 27th and Y Streets. Everyone is welcome to attend.
