Patriot Day ceremony coming Sept. 11
Fort Knox PAO
The public is invited to attend Fort Knox’s Patriot Day ceremony which begins at 8:15 a.m. Sept. 11 at the Patton Museum. The event will provide attendees an opportunity to reflect upon the events of 9/11 and remember those who lost their lives. Foam 161—the 9/11 Pentagon fire truck—will also be unveiled at the ceremony as a centerpiece addition to the museum’s 9/11 exhibit on leadership.
On Sept. 10, Foam 161 will be loaded onto a trailer and driven down U.S. Highway 31W from Fort Knox, around the downtown Elizabethtown, Ky., roundabout, and back to Fort Knox from 2 to 4 p.m. Community members are encouraged to line 31W to pay their respects to this piece of American history.
