Remembering 9/11

Updated: Thursday, September 19 2013, 08:31 AM EDT
On this somber anniversary of the September 11 Terror Attacks, a memorial along a mountain road reminds each of to treasure our freedom. It comes at a high price. The memorial outside the Clyde Fire Department includes two steel beams from the World Trade Towers. The New York Port Authority offered the remnants of the towers to communities or groups that would use them for memorials. That is where Clyde Firefighter Bill Hoke got the idea. The Department received the beams in March, 2011. It dedicated the memorial on the 10th Anniversary of the attacks. This morning, Hoke told News 13's Victoria Dunkle the Fire Department is working to have the state put up a sign on I-40. It wants to let travelers know about this historical memorial that is open for them to visit whenever they want.Remembering 9/11
