NIAGARA FALLS — Members of the Niagara Falls Fire Department, U.S. Army, NYS Parks Police, Niagara County Sheriffs and Niagara Falls Ontario Police Honor Guard participate Wednesday morning at the raising of The Patriot Flag on Goat Island. The flag is on a national tour that began on Sept. 10, 2010 and ends this August to call upon communities across the nation to display the flag and remember the tragedy of 9/11 and those who died that day, and show appreciation for all who serve to protect the nation through military service and public safety professions. The 30-by-55-foot Patriot Flag was flown from atop a Niagara Falls Fire Department ladder truck for approximately 55 minutes, which is equal to the elapsed time between the collapse of the first tower and the second tower on Sept. 11, 2001.
