(Michigan City, IN) - A Patriot’s Day ceremony is scheduled for Saturday in Michigan City to formally recognize the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on U.S. soil.
Citizens are invited to Millennium Plaza for the event, which begins at 8:30 AM.
Mayor Duane Parry will speak about the sacrifices of emergency responders and the innocent people who died on September 11, 2001. A wreath will also be placed in Trail Creek.
La Porte County Commissioner Rich Mrozinski hopes people tomorrow will especially remember those who perished.
“They had no idea it was coming. Some of those people never knew what hit them,” Mrozinski says.
Mrozinski, who saw combat duty in the Vietnam War, said the anniversary should remind the country never to let its guard down.
“We need to be vigilant. We need to be ready and prepared. We need to make sure our military is ready and prepared,” Mrozinski warns.
