Post Date:09/05/2019 7:44 AM

The San Angelo Fire Department is hosting a 9/11 memorial service at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019 at the city’s 9/11 monument. 

The public is invited to attend and remember and honor those who perished during the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The monument is near Celebration Bridge along the Concho River and adjacent to the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, located at 1 Love St. 

The program will feature a keynote address from Col. Andres R. Nazario, Commander of the 17th Training Wing at Goodfellow Air Force Base. 

The memorial was dedicated on Sept. 8, 2003, in honor of those who died in the attacks. San Angelo’s is one of a few memorials in Texas that includes a piece of steel from Ground Zero in New York City. 

The monument’s original World Trade Center steel artifact was stolen in 2016. In 2017, the Velez family donated another steel artifact from Ground Zero. It is now a centerpiece for the monument’s repair and restoration.
