There are many events happening locally to honor those who died twelve years ago.
Several start this morning, including one on the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, it should be a pretty powerful ceremony. Some of those airmen have served overseas following the September 11 attacks, and the ceremony could hold special meaning for them.
The ceremony began this morning, just a few minutes ago, and is being held on D-M at the base theater. Colonel Michael Rawls will be the guest speaker for the ceremony. Col. Rawls is the Vice Commander of the 355th Fighter Wing, and according to his biography on the base's website, he plays a key role in organizing, training and equipping the 22 Squadron Wing.
