The Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) and the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum are hosting “9/11 Remembered” on Friday, Sept. 9 at 10 a.m. This special ceremony is being held both in memory of the 2,977 lives that were lost on Sept. 11, 2001 and to honor the many living and deceased heroes who risked their lives that day and in the days after the attacks on the United States. The first responders and members of Texas Task Force 1 who responded to Ground Zero in 2001 will be recognized, and a piece of the steel from the World Trade Center will be on display in the rotunda. The ceremony will be held at the Bush Library and Museum, which is located at 1000 George Bush Drive West in College Station.
President Albrecht Broemme of the Federal Agency for Technical Relief in Germany will present a keynote address on “9/11’s Global Impact.” Also speaking will be J. Robert “Bob” McKee, Director of Texas Task Force 1 and TEEX’s Disaster Preparedness and Response Division. The ceremony will include special musical selections by the Texas A&M Singing Cadets, the Austin Fire Department Pipe Band, Chris Hoffman and Ed Kane. The public is invited.
In honor and recognition of the sacrifices made by first responders and our military in connection with 9/11 and the Global War on Terrorism, the Bush Library and Museum proudly offers free admission for all first responders and active-duty service members (with appropriate ID) and up to five immediate family members from Friday, Sept. 9 through Sunday, Sept. 11.
