The Austin Police Department Pipe and Drum Corps, in conjunction with the Emergency Service Pipes and Drums Association, will play at the Texas State Cemetery this Friday in memory of all who lost their lives on 9/11. Out of the 2,977 deaths that occurred that tragic day, 412 were first responders who rushed to the towers to do their duty. APD will never forget the sacrifices those brave men and women gave to their community and to this nation.
This event will begin promptly at 8:59 a.m., which is the exact time that the first tower collapsed after being impacted.
