2014 Sept. 11 commemoration
Thirteen years ago today at approximately 8:46 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, the first of two planes struck the World Trade Center buildings in New York. More than 3,000 people lost their lives and our country was forever changed. Since that fateful day, members of our Armed Forces have continuously deployed across the globe to combat terrorism and weed out terrorists abroad.
In remembrance of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to, and in the defense of, our great nation, MCAS Iwakuni has provided a photo album commemorating this day.
