The service will be around 30 minutes, according to organizer Bruce Gallinger. The speaker for the honor is House District 54 Representative Lloyd Larsen. A military honor guard will also participate with a 21-gun salute and the playing of TAPS.

This is the first time Post 33 is doing a remembrance for 9/11, Gallinger shared, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
