Pembroke holds 9-11 remembrance service

PEMBROKE, GA (WTOC) - Tuesday will mark 11 years since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

"We have faced profound change since 9-11. After a decade of conflict, we face more change and more challenges. Despite all the changes, one thing remains constant, the army's most valuable asset is its people."

Lieutenant Colonel Nathan Swartz of the 703rd Brigade Support Battalion Third Infantry Division spoke at the City of Pembroke's 9-11 remembrance service Sunday night.

The service included prayer and songs. Humvees from Fort Stewart were on display for the community to see and tour.

"Oh, i think it's wonderful opportunity for our community to recognize those who are in harms way and those who protect us and provide us with our freedoms," said Pembroke mayor Mary Warnell.

The service was just one many third infantry division soldiers will be participating in the next couple of days.
