Salvation Army Remembers September 11

Wauwatosa, WI (September 10, 2012)  On September 11, 2001, a series of coordinated terrorist attacks on passenger airliners left thousands dead and hundreds of thousands more in need.  The Salvation Army was closely involved with the recovery process for survivors of New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. following the tragic events of 9/11.

The Salvation Army was one of the first relief organizations to arrive on screen at “Ground Zero” and provided extensive support for relief workers and volunteers.  The Army continued to support recovery efforts throughout the months-long clean up process.  In the months and years that followed, The Salvation Army assisted thousands of people impacted by the September 11 attacks with practical assistance as well as spiritual and emotional care.

“Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the families who lost loved ones and friends on that tragic day,” said Major Roger Ross, Salvation Army Milwaukee County Commander.

A number of Salvation Army personnel took photographs during their assignment at “Ground Zero”, those photos have been collected and can now be viewed at www.SAmilwaukee.org through a pictorial display.
