The schedule of events is as follows:

“The ceremony is our way of paying respect to our brothers and sisters who served as first responders on that terrible day. Whether they were first responders, civilians, or passengers on planes, so many made the ultimate sacrifice in order to save the lives of others that day,” said Pueblo Fire Captain Bryce Boyer.
Matt Albright, director of the Center for American Values, said, “This year we will also acknowledge the selfless service and sacrifice of our military members who have bravely defended our freedom and protected us from further attacks in the 20 years since 9/11.”
