On a clear day, September 11, 2001 America suffered surprise attacks by foreign terrorists upon her homeland. At the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon outside Washington, and finally in a field near a village named Shanksville in Pennsylvania.

After a time, rubble was removed, smoke and minds cleared, yet memory remains. The People of Wayne County decided to erect a memorial to stand as a permanent reminder, not of the suffering our country had endured. But to honor those among us who serve and save us in times like that day. We pay tribute to our firefighters, police, emergency medical personnel and armed services. All of whom continue to dedicate themselves to serving, saving and protecting the rest of us.

Steel from "Ground Zero' in NYC, American Stone, Land, Labor and Love completed this Monument.

Dedicated by the Grateful People of Wayne County, Pennsylvania.

This 11th Day in the Month of September 2005

Let us remember those who perished
Those who sacrificed
and Those who continue to serve


 
Erected 2005 by the People of Wayne County.
