VFW Post 8904 to Remember September 11, 2001 with Patriot Day Observance

As Patriot Day falls on Saturday we will observe on Friday. Begin at 9:00 a.m.

September 7, 2021 - Those who we lost twenty years ago on September 11, 2001, will forever hold a cherished place in our hearts and in the history of our nation. By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001, (Public Law 107-89), Congress authorized the president to designate September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day" to perpetuate the memory of those who perished in the attack on America and to pursue peace and justice in the world and security at home.
