On Saturday, Sept. 11, the 2nd annual 9-11 Memorial Rollout will take place in Boise, honoring those who lost their lives on 9-11-01. The event is scheduled to start at 5:00 pm in Boise’s Ann Morrison Park, and at 6:00 pm, participants will leave for the Idaho State Veteran’s Cemetery, where they will place American flags in memory of the events of that day. The public is invited to participate.
The event is organized by a group known as the Idaho Liberty Dogs. Cin Alfonzo, spokesperson for the group, told True Idaho News, “We feel it’s important to remember those who suffered that day and all the lives lost because of the horrendous acts of terrorists.”
The Memorial Rollout starts at 5:00 pm with prayer and a reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance. Alfonso says several speakers will also share their stories with the audience. “One of our speakers is a Veteran whose father was a New York Policeman, who responded to the call at the Twin Towers. We feel it’s important to honor every life that was lost that day and the families who must carry on without them.”
Coffee and donuts will be provided by the Idaho Liberty Dogs at Ann Morrison Park. At 6:00 pm, those present will leave for the Idaho State Veterans Cemetery, where they will place flags.
“We ask that each person attending bring a small American flag to plant in the ground at the cemetery,” Alfonso said. “We do this to honor the fallen, but also to remind us of the unity that was felt throughout the country – how we all came together as a country after that day.”
Any survivors of the attacks that took place on September 11, 2001 who would like to participate in this event can contact the organizers via the “contact” page on the group’s website, OfficialIdahoLibertyDogs.com.
Alfonso said people are welcome to proudly fly their American flags, Military flags, or First-Responder flags (no political flags) on their vehicles. This will be the 2nd Annual 9-11 Memorial Rollout. Approximately 100 vehicles were involved in last year’s event. Anyone who wishes to honor the fallen and their families on Saturday are welcome to participate.
