As people all across our nation took a moment to pause, and reflect 12 years after the 9/11 attacks, the Junior Army ROTC at Robert C. Byrd High School conducted it's 10th Annual Patriots Day Ceremony.

Many of these students were still as young as seven when the 9/11 attacks took place. For the last decade the Junior ROTC, and RCB students surrounded the schools main flag pole to honor the memory of all the patriots whose lives were lost in the attacks of New York City, the Pentagon, and in the fields of Pennsylvania.

"So it's up to us, every year to teach them. teach them exactly what this is about as Americans, and if not then it will be lost like any other
holiday if we do not carry on the tradition." said First Sergeant Robert Lee Brownfield Junior ROTC Instructor at Robert C. Byrd High School.

Before the ceremony wrapped up, students were encouraged to talk about the events that changed our nation no matter how much, or little they remembered from that day.
