'Never Forget' Tribute in Millington Honors 9/11 Victims

MEMPHIS, TN -(localmemphis.com) - The 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks was remembered in Millington, a place with a rich military history and where so many people here and across the Mid-South answered the call and enlisted for service.

Participants sang patriotic songs with heavy hearts this Sunday afternoon on front lawn of the Northridge Woodhaven Funeral home.

Highway 51 was covered in nearly 3000 flags to honor those lives lost 15 years ago today.

Students at Millington High School, who were just babies when the 9/11 attacks occurred, also contributed this artwork.  The event is now included in u-s history curriculums nationwide.

Attendees also signed a banner to say 'thank you' to the first responders who died in New York on 9/11 and those who still protect us locally today.
