Dahlgren Holds 9/11 Observance Ceremony

By NSWCDD Corporate Communications

Naval Support Activity South Potomac (NSASP) held an observance ceremony to  honor those killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Navy chief petty officer selectees led the event held at the facility's headquarters building. NSASP leadership, Sailors, and first responders were among the government, contractor, and military personnel from commands located on NSASP who attended the event. This year marks the 18th anniversary of the attacks, which took the lives of 2,977 people in New York City; Washington, D.C.; and a field outside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as well as the lives of the innocent passengers and crew members on the hijacked planes.

“September 11 is a day of remembrance for the thousands of innocent Americans who lost their lives after four horrific plane hijackings that resulted in crashes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and farmland near Somerset, Pennsylvania 18 years ago,” said Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) Capt. Casey Plew and NSWCDD Technical Director John Fiore in an all hands email to their workforce. “As we remember that fateful day, let us also remember the courageous responses of first responder teams and the conviction of the entire nation to stand together to assist the victims and to support our military as they pursued Al Qaeda terrorists and brought them to justice.”
