Every year our nation comes together to honor the heroes and victims of the 9-11-2001 terrorist attacks. This year’s motto is “Never Forget,” and the people of Sacramento County will come together to recognize and honor those who gave so much.
At the Sacramento International Airport, the TSA-SMF Honor Guard will continue their tradition of a flag folding ceremony simultaneously in front of the checkpoints at both terminals beginning at 8:46 a.m. and will call for a brief moment of silence. Everyone is invited to observe and participate.
By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), Congress designated September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day," and by Public Law 111-13, approved April 21, 2009, Congress requested the observance of September 11 as an annually recognized "National Day of Service and Remembrance."
All flags will be flown half-staff on 9/11/16.
