This Friday marks 19-years since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and against the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia.

To commemorate the day, The ‘9/11 Honor Walk’ took place at the Virginia Beach oceanfront with members of the VBFD, VBPD , VA-TF2, US Navy SEALs as well as retired military.

Volunteers carried a 700 pound ‘9/11 Honor Log’, developed by the non-profit organization, Carry On.

The Carry On mission is to honor the sacrifice of our nation’s fallen military, law enforcement, firefighters and EMS through advocacy and the empowerment of surviving family members.

The Honor Logs are designed to honor the sacrifice of our nation’s fallen heroes through the development of a memorial icon that invokes advocacy and cohesion. Honor Logs are displayed and carried by volunteers at various events throughout each state. In addition military units, police, firefighters and EMS utilize the Honor Logs to instill cohesion and unity during physical training and selection processes. Lastly, the Honor Logs are displayed at office buildings and government headquarters throughout each state to bring awareness and advocacy to the sacrifice of the fallen.
