Forever Media Remembers 9/11. Our Series Of Community Interviews, 20 Years After 9/11/2001

Henry Cook was involved from the beginning with the creation of The Flight 93 Memorial. We thank him for his time to tell us the story of the beginnings of the memorial and all that has been added to it in the last two decades and what is still to come.

He also told us about The USS Somerset. Did you know a Navy ship is named after Somerset County and built with parts from Somerset?

Steve Clark has been the superintendent of the five Western PA National Parks since 2015.We got a chance to talk to him about the parks and The Flight 93 Memorial.

The Memorial was an idea born very soon after that day and the idea has continued to evolve over the last two decades.

We got the chance to Donna Gibson. She is the President of the “Friends of Flight 93”.Tied to the Flight 93 National Memorial, the Friends organization raises awareness, helps the community, and educates generations about the events around Flight 93.

Donald Deaner, of Deaner Funeral Home, was at the scene of Flight 93 for weeks after the crash. In his role of deputy coroner, Mr. Deaner talks the weeks (and months) after 9/11.

Frank Siller is the Chairman and CEO of Tunnel To Towers, an organization that has dedicated itself to helping our first responders and honoring our 9/11 heroes. Frank’s brother, NYC Firefighter Stephen Siller, was one of the 3,000 lost on September 11, 2001. Frank Siller has been walking now to raise awareness. He started at The Pentagon on August 1st. He will end at Ground Zero on the 20th Anniversary of 9/11.

When we spoke to him, he was days away from visiting Flight 93.
