On the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the Mount St. Mary’s ROTC unit held a solemn memorial throughout the day on the university’s Veterans Walkway. The memorial consisted of two cadets standing a solemn post from 8 AM to 7 PM with a change of guard every hour on the hour. The memorial served as a place to pay respects for the victims as well as those who continue to serve as emergency responders, police, firefighters and military personnel. Additionally, a Rosary was prayed after the Noon Mass on campus in conjunction with the day’s memorial. A large number of seminarians joined current undergrad students in remembering the horrific events of September 11, 2001 in New York, Washington, DC, and Shanksville, PA while also honoring those many men and women who have given their lives in combat over the last eleven years.
