The American Legion Dept. of Indiana is hosting a 9/11 Remembrance event that will honor the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and help raise funds for the Indiana 9/11 Memorial expansion to include the lives lost at the Pentagon.

The event will occur rain or shine and start from all four corners of the state, with start times that vary based on location. The four motorcades will convene at the Indiana Legion Headquarters located on the grounds of the former Fort Benjamin Harrison located in Lawrence before departing at 12:30 p.m. as a group and travel together to the Indiana 9/11 Memorial site.

A remembrance ceremony featuring dignitaries, first responders and military veterans will start at 2 p.m. and honor all lives lost on 9/11 and in the ensuing wars.
