In 2005, the people at the U.S. Department of Defense held the first walk in Washington, D.C., to honor and remember our troops serving around the world, the service of our veterans and the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
This Sept. 11 will be the eighth anniversary of the terrorist attacks, school officials said. Joining those in Washington, D.C., and others in cities all over the United States, the students, teachers, administrators, ROTC color guard and officials from the Beeville City Council and Police Department will walk around the perimeter of the academy at Madderra school and the Head Start school. Anyone who wishes to join is greatly welcome.
This is a special event that serves as a reminder of what happened on Sept. 11, 2001, and a chance to say thank you to all our veterans, past and present, for protecting our freedom, school officials added.
