Kilgore College Fire Academy holds 9/11 remembrance ceremony
The Kilgore College Fire Academy held a Gone But Never Forgotten ceremony to dedicate a new flag pole in memory of the firefighters who died on September 11, 2001.
Kilgore College Fire Academy officials realized many of their cadets were young children when the attacks occurred, and as KLTV 7's Lynn Mitchell observed, they also dedicated their ceremony to teaching this generation of firefighters about our country's past.
343 firefighters died on September 11.
Fire Academy officials say they will fly a flag every day they train in remembrance of the men who lost their lives on 9-11.
