Events commemorating Sept. 11, 2001, took place around the country today. American Legion Post 10 in Albany, and other local sponsors, organized a memorial event at the Linn County Courthouse this morning.
Post 10 member David Solomon was the master of ceremonies. He was a first responder in New York that day as a medic. Sheriff Riley was also a speaker.
Jim Haggart, Executive Assistant to the Superintendent, represented the District in his service dress uniform.
Mr. Haggart was a Navy pilot and retired as a Captain after 30 years of active duty, serving his last assignment at the Navy and Marine Corps ROTC Unit at Oregon State University.
