In Atascadero Friday evening, a ceremony to remember 911. The speakers included Vicki Norden whose husband served as a Navy Seal, and Andy Caldwell, whose father survived the Bataan Death March in the Philippines in 1942.
Caldwell says despite all his suffering, his father never mentioned it. District attorney Dan Dow also spoke. He enumerated all the events of 911, the hijacking of four commercial airliners which all crashed, killing everyone on board, and more than three thousand people on the ground or in the twin towers in New York.
Atascadero mayor Heather Moreno said it turned out to be a pretty good event. Supervisor Debbie Arnold agrees, it was a nice event.
About 350 attended the event Friday night at the Faces of Freedom in Atascadero.
