NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- It was an emotional day highlighted by bravery from local emergency response workers who shared their 9/11 stories.
Words from an Charleston FBI agent who was called to help track the terrorists, a county EMS worker who worked the scene at Ground Zero and a North Charleston Fire Department captain who was called to help identify body parts at The Pentagon highlighted the event.
Hundreds were in attendance at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center, most were public servants, proudly wearing uniforms.
An American flag the size of a small office building was hoisted between ladders of two North Charleston fire trucks, appropriately positioned near the entrance to the ceremony.
The ceremony that began with The Pledge of Allegiance and The National Anthem ended in a similarly appropriate fashion with Taps, bagpipes, Amazing Grace, prayer and the retiring of the colors.
