Fort Knox’s memories of Sept. 11, 2001, now are set in steel.
A monument set with a portion of a steel beam from the World Trade Center was unveiled at a ceremony at Fort Knox Firehouse 1 Sunday morning, the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Fort Knox Fire and Emergency hosted a services tribute to the victims of 9/11 and the first responders who were called to help that day.
The tribute began with an invocation from Lt. Col. James Boulware, a chaplain.
“That infamous day remains deeply etched in our memory,” Boulware said.
