Tomahawk 9/11 Memorial

Posted:

In Tomahawk, community members gathered for a 9/11 memorial.

The morning began with a parade. A bagpiper left the fire station, followed by fire, police and ambulance vehicles. Veterans were also showcased in the procession. The parade ended at Veteran's Memorial Park,  where the crowd listened to speakers, saluted an honor guard and watched a dove release.

Keith Hanse of the WI Air National Guard was there and talked about how the events of 9/11 have changed lives. "I have been deployed four times since then to Iraq and Afghanistan. There has been a ripple impact on every military member since 9/11."
