BILLINGS - Two F-15C Eagle aircraft from the 120th Fighter Wing Montana Air National Guard will fly over MSU Billings College of Technology in Billings, at 2 p.m. Sunday as part of a September 11th ceremony during 'Montana's 9/11 Memorial'.
This flyover will honor all the men and women who lost their lives in New York, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania. It also pays tribute to servicemembers killed or wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan since September 11, 2001, and those who continue to serve.
The event will feature speakers whose lives were changed by the tragedy of 9/11 and some who answered the call to service.
At 3:30p.m., a panel discussion in the C-O-T Commons will discuss the effects of 9/11 on our community resources, safety, and security.
Panelists include: people from Billings Logan International Airport, the Billings Fire Department, and the Department of Homeland Security.
Then at 8:30 p.m., a faith-based candlelight vigil will be held at the memorial site.
You are encouraged to bring your own candles.
The vigil is being organized by Steve Gordon of Mayflower Congregational Church.
It's a day to remember the victims of the 9-11 attacks and look at how those attacks changed the country.
