This was such a nice tribute and recognition for the many people that perhaps aren't celebrated on the national scale, but none the less, they are brave, heroic and they are OUR community. Thank you patch for this rememberance.

This is a beautiful tribute. Every American was impacted by this act of terrorism. I am proud of all of those who served and continue serving. My brother's unit was the first Marine Corps MEU (Marine Expeditionary Unit) in Afghanistan after 9/11. It was a particularly difficult time for our family, but I will always remember what he said to me the night before he left "Don't worry about me, this is what I trained all my life to do..." This is a common attitude of our service members; they are just doing their jobs. They are a humble corps, but we remain very proud of you all! Thank you.

This is definitely worth 3 minutes and 41 seconds of your life to watch. The faces and stories will linger with you much much longer. Great job!
