Firefighters, police officers, medics, soldiers and veterans from around the area gathered Tuesday night at the Bridgeville fire hall to remember the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks 11 years ago.
The Knights of Columbus in Bridgeville formed an honor guard to salute the first responders and military members–both active duty and retired–and to honor their service.
Some of the firefighters who attended were from Bridgeville, Presto, Rennerdale, South Fayette, Fairview, East Carnegie, Bower Hill, Upper St. Clair and Cecil. Two Bridgeville police officers, a Pennsylvania state police trooper, a SouthBridge medic and two Army soldiers accompanied them for the service.
A moment of silence was held for the nearly 3,000 victims killed in the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and for the servicemen and women who have died while fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Tuesday night’s memorial service in Bridgeville was just one of many in the area. If you have any photos of the 9/11 memorial service you attended, please upload them to this story by clicking on the “UPLOAD PHOTOS” tab at the top and bottom of the page. We’ll feature them on the main Patch website throughout the day.
