Huntington, WV 9/11 Memorial to Open on Patriot Day, 2017

Following enactment of bipartisan legislation in the winter of 2001, the first Patriot Day was observed on September 11, 2002. Then with passage of the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act in 2009, the president has each year proclaimed September 11 to be Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance. The exercises of remembrance on Patriot Day have always included events at the sites of the terrorist attacks: Ground Zero at New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the Shanksville, Pennsylvania crash site of United Airlines Flight 93.

On Patriot Day this year, residents of Huntington, West Virginia will be able to gather at their own 9/11 Memorial, which will be unveiled and dedicated at 6 p.m. The location is the Springhill Cemetery, 1427 Norway Avenue, in Huntington, the home of the 9/11 Healing Field. This powerful tribute to victims of the terrorist attacks and the brave first responders who lost their lives contains steel artifacts from the rubble of the World Trade Center. Last Patriot Day, the town held a ceremony to mark the completion of the early phase of a memorial plaza.

Since 2001, hundreds of permanent 9/11 memorials have been erected across the United States and throughout the world. Steel from the WTC has been repurposed for numerous structures including the U.S.S. New York, a naval ship dedicated to the war against worldwide terror.

Our veterans’ rights attorneys stand with our military and first responders whose courage preserves the freedom we all enjoy.
