Law enforcement, military units and first responders from throughout the Lehigh Valley attended the memorial tribute to honor those who lost their lives in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The tribute also included a bagpiper playing “Amazing Grace,” a bugler sounding taps and verbal tributes to first responders. Mission BBQ, a longtime supporter of law enforcement, the military and fire and medical personnel, provided lunch for those first responders in attendance.
