Naval Station Mayport Sailors and firefighters held a 9/11 ceremony Monday at the base headquarters in honor of the 3,000 killed during terrorist attacks that took place the morning of September 11, 2001.

The base staged fire trucks and police vehicles in front of the headquarters and raised the American flag at 8 a.m. There was a bell ringing and a moment of silence. They also prayed for the memory of those who lost their lives.

There was also a call to action to teach those who either were too young to remember what happened that day or weren’t even born. A Commanding Officer spoke about the importance of the ceremony and the duties Naval Station Mayport sailors perform daily.

Monday marks the 22nd anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. It’s a time in history that we will never forget.
