9/11 flag makes way to OKC Memorial | News
A big part of Tuesday's memorial service was a special honor for some survivors and emergency responders.
The National 9/11 flag made it's way to the Sooner State. The flag was destroyed in the aftermath of September 11, 2001 and is now being stitched back together using flags from all 50 states, including the flag that flew over last year's bombing memorial ceremony.
When finished, the flag will become a permanent part of the National 9/11 Memorial Museum.
"We hope that the story that the flag tells for generations isn't just about what happened on 9/11, but what happened on 9/12. I think it's the same message here in Oklahoma City; not just about what happened on April 19th, but what happened on the 20th when so many Americans came together to help each other recover," said Jeff Parness, NY Says Thank You Foundation.
The custodians of the flag hope to have it completely back to form, with patches from all 50 states, by this year's 9/11 anniversary.
