Valley Community Comes Together in Memory of 9/11

September 11, 2019
KRFV-TV (Texas)

The group Veterans United organized the ceremony. The list of speakers included one person who was in Manhattan at the time of the attack and a military veteran who served overseas as a result of 9/11.   Event organizers tell us the purpose is to make sure Valley residents never forget what happened 18-years ago. Also in honor of the 9/11 anniversary, a group of retirees cleaned gravestones at Veterans Cemetery in Mission. Around 80 volunteers, with the Rio Grande Valley Senior Corps, cleaned every tombstone.
