FDX MEC FastRead: Patriot Day - 9/11/19


September 11, 2019
Today, we join the country and our fellow pilots in reflecting on the 18th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001—a day that forever changed us individually and as a nation. It is a day that pilots, in particular, take to heart because of our professional connection to the first victims of the attacks and the fact that many of our friends and family members continue to serve in the military abroad.
September 11th is Patriot Day and a National Day of Service and Remembrance. Americans across the country will volunteer in their local communities in tribute to the individuals lost and injured in the attacks, first responders, and the many who have risen in service to defend our freedom. Wherever you may be today, please take a moment to honor the victims of 9/11 and pay tribute to the crew of United Flight 93, United Flight 175, American Airlines Flight 11, and American Airlines Flight 77. May we never forget.
