Clovis, CA (September 11, 2007) â€“ Earlier today, many hundreds of Pelco employees, honored guests and the public joined together in commemoration of the Sixth Anniversary of September 11, 2001, and to celebrate the lives of the fallen heroes from that day.
â€œWe must never forget the thousands of innocent men and women who went to work that day and never returned home,â€ explained Pelco President and CEO David L. McDonald. â€œI strongly believe that every American now shares this responsibility. We must never forget.â€
Honored guests who attended the ceremony included: Chief Anthony Whitaker from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department, and Andy Isolano, former FDNY firefighter. Both are survivors of September 11, 2001. Other honored guests included retired US Army Sergeant Jude Recendez, who lost both his legs in a roadside bomb explosion in Iraq; the Combined Command Military Honor Guard, as well as numerous first responders from the local area.
Pelco honors the brave men and women who sacrificed so much in 2001 with an annual September 11th Observance. Throughout the year, the California Memorial and the California Memorial Museum are open to the public to honor those who were lost and those who survived the attacks on the east coast.
