      Welcome Home Veterans Celebration - 9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit

      As part of the 5th Annual Welcome Home Veterans Celebration, the 9/11 Never Forget Memorial Exhibit will be in Clarksville from September 19 - 22, 2019.  Special thanks to our sponsors, Sykes Funeral Home.   The exhibit is a tribute to all those whose lives were sacrificed on September 11, 2001. It's a tool to educate America’s youth about that historic day. The Siller Family started the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to honor the memory and carry on the legacy of their brother, Stephen, a New York City ­firefighter (FDNY) who lost his life on September 11, 2001 after strapping 60 lbs. of gear to his back and rushing on foot through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers, where he gave up his life while saving others.In 2013, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation created a mobile exhibit as a tribute to all who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. The 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit is a tool to educate America and its youth about the historic events of that day. Welcomed around the country in cities like Dubuque, Iowa, Sturgis, South Dakota, Tampa, Florida, and Waseca, Minnesota, the 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit – a high-tech, 53-foot tractor- trailer, which unfolds into a 1,000 square foot exhibit, serves as a poignant reminder of that tragic day.The memorial provides interactive education; including artifacts such as steel beams from the towers, documentary videos, recordings of fi­rst responder radio transmissions and live tours by FDNY ­firefighters. Entrance into theexhibit is always free of charge.The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is committed to ensuring WE NEVER FORGET.
