Sept. 11, 2011 will mark the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Flight 93 in Pennsylvania.
As a tribute to and in memory of loved ones and heroes, Harley Davidson of Naples held an all day event on Sunday, September 11, 2011. This date marked the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the United States. The day started with an honor guard from Barron Collier High School at noon.
With the Marco Fire-Rescue squad, the public and even a first responder to New York's Ground Zero in attendance the afternoon proved a rich blend of remembrance, sadness, gratefulness and hope. Visitors travelling along 951 in Marco immediately recognized our flag flying high from the extended ladder of a Marco Fire- Rescue engine leading to more emergency trucks and ultimately to the men and women who use them dutifully in service on Marco. A quick welcome then a Fire-Rescue Color Guard posting preceded the National Anthem, lunch and a moving talk by NYC first responder fireman Dennis Bootle. Video presentations at times somber did not shake the patriotic feel in the room and attendees often commented that "they were here just to be here".
Firefighters and law enforcement officers from across the nation will pedal from Naples to New York City in honor of the 411 emergency service workers who died on 9/11 in the line of duty at the World Trade Center. The Brotherhood Ride, now in its fourth year, was founded by North Naples Firefighter Jeffrey Morse to honor firefighters and police officers who are killed in the line of duty.
