In all, four planes were hijacked and two were crashed into the World Trade Center twin towers in New York City, one in the Pentagon and another crashed into a field near Shanksville, Penn.


Stumb pointed out 2,977 people died on Sept. 11, 2001, including 411 emergency services personnel in New York alone. He asked everyone not to forget the men and women in the U.S. Military who served in the War on Terror following the terrorist attacks.


Since 9/11, Stumb said 6,280 service men and women have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, along with 41,936 wounded. He said there are still 90,000 U.S. troops deployed in Afghanistan.


Remember three groups, the victims, the military personnel who have served and those still serving, Stumb said.


The LPD Color Guard presented the colors and country music singer Daryle Singletary sang the National Anthem. Police Chief Scott Bowen honored five officers who served in the War on Terror since 9/11, including Public Safety Officer William Glover, Joe Nokes, Jeff Scott, Kenny Powers and Joe Maggart.
