PENSACOLA — In commemoration of the events of September 11, 2001, Naval Air Station Pensacola will hold a ceremony at 10 a.m. Sept. 11 at the National Naval Aviation Museum, 1750 Radford Blvd. The public may attend.
NAS Pensacola's commanding officer, Capt. Keith Hoskins, will provide opening remarks for the event, which includes a "Where Were You" tribute, a traditional "two-bell ceremony," and the playing of "Taps" by the NASP Honor Guard.
