Johnson County Remembers

JoCo Remembers: In honor of the 2,977 lives lost on 9/11

A lot has changed since Sept. 11, 2001. Since December 2001, a joint resolution of Congress has designated Sept. 11 each year as Patriot Day. In 2009, Congress passed legislation requesting the observance of a “National Day of Service and Remembrance” on Patriot Day.
