Event Details

The community is invited to join the Board of County Supervisors in honoring and remembering the 22 Prince William County residents and all of those who lost their lives on 9-11 during a brief ceremony at the Liberty Memorial on Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 1 p.m.

The ceremony will include brief comments, the reading of the names of the county residents who were killed that day, and placing flowers on the memorial fountain to honor and remember those who died.
The Liberty Memorial is located between the Prince William Parkway and James J. McCoart Administration Building. It was dedicated on May 9, 2006, to honor those who died on 9/11. The shape of the reflecting pool and walkway recall the 184 lives lost at the Pentagon. The single stone to the left of that plaque is an original limestone block from the collapsed portion of the Pentagon. The two columns of water represent the 2,749 lives ost at the World Trade Center in New York City. The stone that encircles the fountain is Pennsylvania flagstone, a tribute to the 40 lives lost in Pennsylvania.
The flag pole standing at the Liberty Memorial is the flag pole that James T. Lynch, Jr., who was killed during the attack on the Pentagon, erected at his home in Prince William County. The names of those killed from the Prince William area are inscribed on the west wall of the fountain’s pool. A sculpture of three pieces of steel from the World Trade Center stands across the street from the Liberty Memorial. The sculpture represents the resilience of the people of the United States even when faced with attacks on the homeland.
We hope you will join us on Sept. 11 to remember the fallen and to ensure that we never forget what happened on Sept. 11, 2001.
