September 11, 2015 will mark 14 years since the September 11, 2001 attacks on the New York City, Washington D.C. and the United States. There are a few ceremonies planned to remember those lost and to commemorate the anniversary.

Naval War College
The Naval War College (NWC) will hold a remembrance ceremony at noon, Sept. 11, at the Patriots Memorial on the NWC campus, to commemorate the 14th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks.
The ceremony will honor those killed on Sept. 11, 2001, and pay special tribute to the three NWC students and eight alumni killed in the terrorist attack on the Pentagon 14 years ago. Rear Adm. P. Gardner Howe III, president, NWC, will be the guest speaker.

The remembrance will include a wreath laying at the memorial and a bell-ringing ceremony conducted by the Newport-area chief petty officer selectees. Patriots Memorial consists of a section of limestone removed from the damaged portion of the Pentagon.

The names of the 11 fallen are inscribed on the memorial, which was dedicated in September 2002.
The event is open to anyone with routine base access.
