On a cold and windy October day, less than a month after the 9/11 terror attacks, local leaders gathered near the Pentagon at Washington-Lee High School for a “Day of Remembrance and Appreciation.”

The event, hosted by NBC4’s Doreen Gentzler, featured speeches from first responders, from military brass and from county and state officials, including Arlington County Manager Ron Carlee, then-County Board Chair Jay Fisette, Gov. Jim Gilmore and Rep. Jim Moran.

Arlington County has uploaded the entire hour and a half video to YouTube, in advance of the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Fast forward to 55:30 to see a three-minute video presentation recounting the attack on the Pentagon and the emergency response that followed.
