Patriots Day Observances

Members of the Red River Sheriff’s Office took part in a Patriot’s Day observance on Highway 1 on Wednesday, September 11th.  Here is their story.

“Thanks to the crew from Volt Power for honoring and remembering the nearly 3000 victims of the 911 attacks! This photo was taken near the intersection of Hwy 1 and Blount Road earlier today (Sept 11th). It will remain in place until approximately 6:00 this evening. May we never forget.”

“Yesterday (Sept 11th), before the sun set on another Patriot Day, Red River Parish Sheriff’s deputies Kevin Caldwell and Lt. John Mahfouz joined workers from Volt Power in one final tribute to the victims of the 9/11 attacks. The photo was taken on Hwy 1 in Harmon. May we always remember!”

Sheriff Glen Edwards posted the tribute on the Sheriff’s Facebook Page. The photo was taken by Lt. John Mahfouz.

The Northwestern State University community paused at 8:46 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11 to honor individuals who lost their lives in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, their families and first responders.  The university family observed a moment of silence, sang the national anthem and joined in reflection of Patriot Day and the meaning of freedom, liberty and faith. 

The NSU tribute took place at the flagpoles at the center of campus with participation of NSU’s ROTC cadets.  Members of the Student Government Association distributed American flag pins.
