The one remaining American flag from the World Trade Center that survived the 9-11 attacks will take a special position during the inauguration of Marian University President Steven DiSalvo this Saturday.
DiSalvo says he was involved with a group that helped start a foundation, where first responders from 9-11 help in rebuilding projects. That group, New York says Thank You, is traveling the nation with the remnants of the WTC flag. During stops in all 50 states, they’re piecing it back together using other American flags from the sites they visit.
DiSalvo says there will be a stitching ceremony on the University’s quad in Fond du Lac on Saturday afternoon. He says it’s the only stop the flag will make in Wisconsin. When it’s complete, it will be donated to the 9-11 Memorial next fall on the 10th anniversary of the attack.
