Remembering 9/11’s victims

Small American flags dot the lawn alongside the Kenai Spur Highway on Monday in Kenai. The American Legion post in Kenai placed the flags early Monday morning in memorial of the 2,996 flags on the greenway between Frontage Road and the highway, one for each person killed when coordinated terrorist attacks led to airplanes crashing into the World Trade Centers in New York City and into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. The display added to the Kenai Fire Department’s display of 343 flags on the corner of Willow and Main streets in honor of the firefighters killed in the line of duty trying to rescue people from the burning, falling towers.
