Return to In the Media

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- There's a traveling tribute at the corner Eastern Parkway and Bardstown Road to the memory of the 9/11 terror attacks.

"We're moving the flag from sunup to sundown," said veteran Joshua Medina.

"September 11th was only 12 years ago and it is the worst terrorist attack that has ever happened in our country," said John Pinter with Team RWB. "Almost 3,000 people died and it feels like it's slipping from the public view."

That's why the 40 members of Team Red, White and Blue worked in 30-minute shifts walking and running the American flag throughout the Highlands.

This group helps service members transition back from war.

Joshua Medina and his wife both served overseas. Jill Medina is still active duty, and they both say 9/11 led them to enlist.

"Most Americans remember it on this day but if you're a soldier or firefighter and you lost somebody you remember all year round 365 days," said Jill Medina.

Across the river the Jeffersonville High School band also paid tribute to the memory of 9/11 by playing in the opening of a ceremony dedicated to 9/11.

In regards to the tragedy that took place on 9/11 twelve years ago, Media said "We're a strong nation even though we go through our ups and downs everyone has their opinions but we're a country that needs to stand together that's what makes America."
