Flags lowered in Wisconsin to remember Sept. 11 tragedyGov. Scott Walker ordered flags to be lowered today in remembrance of the tragedy that took place on September 11, 2001.
Flags at Wisconsin National Guard armories, air bases and other facilities across the state will fly at half-staff Tuesday as a mark of respect to honor the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the members of the armed forces defending our freedom overseas. The Guard will render these honors in accordance with Gov. Scott Walker's executive order.
“Today, Wisconsin mourns the tragedy that took place on September 11th, 2001,” Walker said. “It is important to remember the price individuals have paid for the freedoms we enjoy today. When those who want to destroy our nation senselessly kill innocent civilians, we respond by banding together and moving forward.”
