Patriot Day 2013: Honoring the Fallen First Responders of 9/11

A moving commemoration observance of the 12th anniversary of 9/11 will take place aboard Battleship IOWA Wednesday, September 11. All first responders who attend will be welcome to tour the ship FREE of charge following the ceremony.

The memorial program will start at 8:00 am with a presentation of colors, followed by a reading of first responders names and a presentation of a ceremonial wreath.
