9/11 Remembrance Ceremony
September 11, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 9:00 amFree
The Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum will host a remembrance ceremony on September 11th for the nearly 3,000 victims killed during the terrorist attacks on the United States 14 years ago. The free, 30-minute ceremony will begin at 8:30 a.m. aboard the USS YORKTOWN.
Former New York City Fire Department First Responder Chevalo Wilsondebriano will be featured as a guest speaker. A highly decorated FDNY Paramedic for 25 years, Wilsondebriano will reflect on the terrifying moments he and his fellow first-responders faced on that morning and the days to come, and how their bravery became a symbol of our nation’s united efforts to come together and rebuild.
The ceremony will also feature singer-songwriter Michael Allen who co-authored “United Through It All” – a song arranged for military bands to perform in dozens of concerts across the country in the wake of the attack.
Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page will officiate the remembrance ceremony. In addition to the guest speakers, a wreath will be cast in Charleston Harbor and a bell will be rung in honor of all 9/11 victims.
There will be no charge for admission or parking for those attending the event.
