Mercer County remembers 9/11

Posted: Updated:

9/11 was remembered in Mercer County.

In downtown Bluefield dignitaries as well as police, firemen and EMS workers were in attendance. The Bluefield Fire Department's truck held the American flag over the ceremony.

Retired Air Force veteran Joe Garcia told 59News why the need tor remember.

"If we don't remember to share these moments with our young people, 20 years from now are they going to remember 9/11? If we don't do something, if we aren't here doing what we are doing, they won't," Garcia said.

Mercer County plans to continue the ceremony every year.
