North Smithfield to mark 9/11 with flag ceremony

September 9, 2013

Wednesday marks the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America. In Rhode Island, the day will be observed with a solemn ceremony in North Smithfield, where North Smithfield Fire & Rescue Services Chief Joel D. Jillson and his men will raise and lower the flag to half-staff in memory of those who lost their lives, including 343 firefighters.

“When we merged with the Primrose department six months after the event on Sept. 11, we incorporated the phrase ‘Never Forget’ in Latin on our new emblem patch and make no mistake, a lot of us have forgotten, unfortunately,” says Jillson.
