Governor Orders Flags Lowered on Patriot Day
September 09, 2011
“Ten years ago, our nation was forever changed by the terrible events of September 11. While the images of that day remain stark and etched solidly in our memories, 9/11 reawakened our patriotic resolve. We have all heard of so many Americans who on that day vowed to do more with their lives - to make their lives count, to live more fully, and embrace their families more wholeheartedly.
“As we mark the 10-year anniversary, I encourage all Alaskans to pause and remember those who were lost on that fateful day, our first responders, our military family, and those who were inspired to answer the call to service as a result of the attacks.”
Flags will remain at half-staff on Sunday in honor and memory of the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Flags will be raised to full-staff at sunset.
