Communities across Colorado are commemorating the 9/11 attacks today. Our Mayo Davison and Jon McMichael will join firefighters making the climb at the Manitou Incline to honor those lost at the World Trade Center.
Local firefighters will climb the Manitou Incline in full gear to pay tribute to the firefighters who lost their lives on that tragic day. Over 300 firefighters lost their lives 18 years ago and our firefighters will climb the Incline steps in about 60 pounds of gear. This is the 5th annual event.
Fort Carson is holding a 9 a.m. wreath-laying this morning at Kit Carson Memorial Park.
In Pueblo, the community will come together at the Riverwalk outside the Center for American Values. The Home of Heroes has held a ceremony every year after the attacks happened to show they will never forget. This 7:58 a.m. is the exact time locally when the first World Trade Center Tower was hit in New York.
