Missoulians gathered for the 17th annual Never Forget Service

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

At Missoula’s Rose Memorial Garden Park, it was a gathering of the men and women in blue for at the 17th annual Never Forget Service.

The service hosted by the United Veterans Council of Missoula and Ravalli Counties.

The park was filled with people paying their respects to those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

The opening of the service was led by the honor and color guards of the Celtic Dragon Pipe Band.

Officers, military officials, fire responders and many more followed the band's lead.

The ceremony was followed by a moment of silence, prayer and then later joining in the National Anthem.

Letters were read from field representatives by Senator John Tester, Senator Steve Dianes and Representative Greg Gianforte.

A common message with these speeches "We will never forget."

American flags were placed in the ground representing all the lives that were lost that day.

"A total of 2,753 men, women and children, including 343 firefighters, 23 New York City police officers, ranging in age from 2 to 85 were killed. You see before us, the men and women represented by flags that were killed in the twin towers...” said Susan Campbell Reneau, Never Forget Service Coordinator.

At the service, Tom Zeigler, a local firefighter, spent weeks at “The Pile” at ground zero in New York helping locate bodies of his friends and fellow firefighters.

Tuesday he read the names of those firefighters who sacrificed to save others.

As he read those names out loud, a bell rung for each of those names.

The 17th annual Never Forget Service closed with prayer.
