Arlington [County]’s 9/11 Anniversary Ceremony

By Ethan Rothstein Arlington Now

Arlington County held a brief ceremony at Courthouse Plaza Wednesday morning to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Dozens of police officers, sheriff’s deputies and civilian observers gathered to partake in a moment of silence at 9:37 a.m., the moment when, 12 years ago, a plane hit the Pentagon, killing 184 people inside.

Following the moment of silence, a member of the Arlington County Police Department honor guard performed Taps on the trumpet while officers lowered the American flag and the flag of the Commonwealth of Virginia to half-staff for the day.
