9-11 COMMEMORATION AT VALLEY FIRE STATION NUMBER 88

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY

Once again we are indebted to Museum supporter Art Jacobs for recording a very important event for our Archives. Art took part in the 9-11 commemoration at Los Angeles Fire Department Station number 88 in Sherman Oaks.(Click on these images to enlarge them.)

 
 "John Keys LAFD Retired played "God Bless America" and "Amazing Grace" on the bag pipes. The brother of the pilot whose plane went down at the Pentagon also spoke at the event."


"The picture of the Red Cross volunteer is Dick Thorpe. Both men in the photo served our country in World War II."
 
 The American flag at LA Fire Station 88 stood at half staff during the 9-11 memorial commemoration.

 "The group of ladies with guide dogs assist were there to show their support. The animals are used as a form of therapuetic support to those who have had trauma."

Carrie Konjoyan, is the coordinator for the 9/11 Memorial Fountain in front of Station 88. The World Trade Center Steel arrived at the station and was dedicated on December 11, 2004.  The Memorial is here to bring about healing in all forms, to offer a place of quiet solitude, as a tribute to those who risk their lives daily and to "Nver Forget" the lives of those lost by first responders on 9/11. www.911socal.com
