Honoring Utah's Hero's for Their Service and Sacrifice
Sign On & Sign Up...Volunteer & Serve...Say "Thank You"
September 11, 2011, marks the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on our country, as well as a federally recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance.
Who can forget the morning of September 11, 2001, when nineteen members of al-Qaeda hijacked four commercial airliners. Shortly after taking control, the hijackers crashed two of the planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, one into the Pentagon in Arlington, VA and a fourth into a rural Pennsylvania field after passengers attempted to retake control of the plane. Over 3,000 people lost their lives that day along with many more fighting to protect our freedoms and keep us safe. Some of our Utah friends and family lost their lives in these attacks and many Utahns volunteered their services in the aftermath.
In commemoration of this event we are asking you to join us along with Utahns across the state and people throughout the country by serving and thanking our active soldiers, military families, veterans, and first responders in the week leading up to and culminating on September 11, 2011.
You can do this in three ways:
