SCRANTON -- Tuesday, Americans remembered a tragic day in our nation's history, the September 11 terror attacks of eleven years ago.

People at an event in Scranton honored those who lost their lives.

The event at McDade Park featured a bell ceremony and a wreath laying to honor first responders who lost their lives and those who serve in the military.

The names of two soldiers from Lackawanna County killed in the war on terror were also added to the memorial at the park today.

The two men from the Carbondale area were among five Pennsylvania Army National Guardsmen who were killed in Iraq in 2005.
