Bugler plays Taps 4 times in honor of 9/11 victims
KENDALL – David Warren of Kendall played Taps this morning for each of the four times then planes crashed during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Warren played Taps at the Kendall Town Park which includes a war memorial. Warren, a member of Bugles Across America, wanted to honor the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terrorist attacks 20 years ago.
There was a reading prior to each sounding to let the audience know which plane crashed and who was being honored. There were many community members that attended for one or more of the soundings, Warren said.
Warren played Taps at the following times:
- 8:46 a.m. when Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City
- 9:03 a.m. when Flight 175 crashes into the South Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City
- 9:37 a.m. when Flight 77 crashed into The Pentagon in Washington, D.C.
- 10:03 a.m. when Flight 93 crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pa.
