On Saturday night Arlington County held a ceremony to mark the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon.

The ceremony, held at the Air Force Memorial, was attended by Arlington police officers and firefighters who responded to the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, as well as top county officials, military personnel and interested citizens.

The tribute featured the U.S. Air Force Band Brass Quintet Ensemble, the Joint Armed Forces Color Guard, the Arlington County Combined Honor Guard, Wakefield High School’s a capella choir “The Madrigals,” Macedonia Baptist Church Music Ministry, and a commemoration by the Pentagon Memorial Fund’s Jim Laychak.

    Plese review your history, photo 19–the man on the right is 2001 police chief Charles H. Ramsey. How quickly they forget.

    @EOs, That actually looks like a Chaplain. & a past DC police chief would not be wearing an ACFD uniform. Perhaps you should pay closer attention before judging

      arlcitz, you are correct. That is Arlington County Fire Department Chaplain Rev. Dr. Leonard Hamlin, who gave the invocation. He is speaking with a fellow F.D. Chaplain from the San Diego County Fire Department, who also attended the event.
