Magic Valley Remembers 9/11

Several hundred Magic Valley residents turned out to remember the attacks of September 11th last evening at Twin Falls City Park. The event was organized by local first responders and the Times-News. It was broadcast live right here on News radio 1310 KLIX and on our sister stations. During the ceremony, Idaho State Senator Lee Heider took time out to recognize the men and women of local law enforcement who put themselves in harm’s way every day.  The ceremony included a full color guard, a 21 gun salute and several numbers by the CSI Symphonic Band.  Twin Falls Mayor Don Hall also took time to honor those in the military who have made sacrifices abroad in the years following the September 11th attacks.   Meanwhile, Governor Butch Otter and First Lady Lori Otter spent Sunday morning remembering Idaho’s fallen military heroes. During a ceremony in Boise, the Otters read aloud  all the names and the places the soldiers had died and the date they died. A bell tone followed each name. Meanwhile at the Idaho Fallen Firefighter Memorial three names were added to the monument… the three soldiers who lost their lives since September 11th of last year. Those are Sergeant Devin Daniels of Council, Sergeant Nathan Beyers of Coeur d’Alene, and Specialist Nicholas Newby, also of Coeur d’Alene.  Navy reservist Ron Vaulk of Nampa was killed on September 11th 2001, during the attack on the Pentagon. So far, 55 Idaho soldiers have been killed in the War on Terror.
