Operation We Remember: Recognizing and Honoring Those Impacted by the Events of 9/11 22 Years Later

August 29, 2023

Rochester, NY – 22 years have passed since the tragic events of September 11, 2001.  Veterans Outreach Center (VOC) along with the Monroe County Veterans Service Agency is hosting Operation We Remember.  The event will take place Monday, September 11 starting at 10:30 a.m. in front of the War on Terror Memorial, Highland Park, 175 Highland Avenue, Rochester, New York 14620.

“It’s hard to believe it’s been 22 years since that fateful day,” Veterans Outreach Center Executive Director and U.S. Army Veteran Laura Heltz said. “So many lives were lost and impacted, and for a lot of people the memories are still as vivid today as they were on that day. Operation We Remember serves to honor and recognize everyone whose lives were changed forever. Many brave men and women chose to enlist in the Armed Forces because of those events. We remain grateful for their service.”

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call Will Dorfner at 585.295.7807.
