Las Vegas Public Service Professionals Honor 9/11 Firefighters
Today is September 11th. It has been 21 years since almost 3000 people perished owing to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, along with those who died in the plane crashes, some of whom fought back valiantly, preventing more carnage. The nation, the world, their families and friends will never forget them.
Yesterday in Las Vegas, firefighters, police, EMT and military personnel gathered at The Strat Hotel, Casino and Skypod on the Las Vegas Strip to remember those who died on September 11th, 2001.
The group of over 200 public service professionals climbed the 1,455 steps to the top of The Strat. Each participant wore a picture of a deceased firefighter who died in New York City on September 11th. We are grateful for this arduous honoring of those brave souls who put themselves in harms way in order to help others.
