On Wednesday, WVU ROTC cadets stood at attention all day long in front of the 9/11 memorial outside of the downtown campus library.

Cadets led a wreath laying ceremony at the memorial site that started promptly at 8:46 a.m., the time the first plane struck the world trade center.

The sound of taps rang throughout the campus as military members and others stood at attention while paying their respects.

Cadets started rotating shifts at 12:00 a.m. Wednesday. They continued posting in front of the memorial every hour and will continue to until midnight. ROTC members said they've been doing this since the attacks 12 years ago to honor all of those who lost their lives.

WVU Army ROTC Cadet Stephen Evans said, "There has been a lot of fighting and casualties in this war. It's the least that we can do to pay our respects to our fallen comrades to stand guard on this post for one day a year." 

A tree next to the memorial was also lit up with red, white and blue lights.
