Jacksonville, Camp Lejeune Remember 9/11

There were remembrances held all across eastern Carolina Friday, including Jacksonville and Camp Lejeune, to mark the eighth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Music, songs and prayer, were part of the the ceremony that took place at the 9/11 Memorial next to the Beirut Memorial at Camp Johnson. The ceremony centered around part of a beam from the World Trade Center that is located at the memorial.

Sergeant Roger Adams, who died in Iraq recently, was honored as his son's football jersey was placed on the beam. Adams was not only a National Guardsman but a volunteer fireman in Onslow County.

Also honored was New York City Firefighter Kevin Smith, who died in the attack. His son is a former Marine at Camp Lejeune and Smith's helmet was also placed at the beam.
