Patriot Day - 10th Anniversary of 9 - 11
Attack on America
September 11, 2011

September 11, 2011 is the 10th anniversary of the day 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airliners and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Over 3,000 people were killed during the attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., including more than 400 police officers and firefighters. September 11th of each year is designated "Patriot Day" and is recognized as a "National Day of Service and Remembrance." President Obama issued a proclamation that all U.S. flag should be at half-staff from sunrise to sunset in memory of the people lost in the September 11th attacks in 2001.
