VALLEY FORGE, PA — The Washington Memorial Chapel in Valley Forge National Historical Park honored the 21st Anniversary of 9/11 with a solemn remembrance service and tribute to Flight 93 Hero Louis J. Nacke II, who is laid to rest in the Chapel’s cemetery, on Sunday, September 11.

Throughout the morning remembrance, the bourdon bell of the Washington Memorial National Carillon tolled six times to mark the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, the collapse of the Twin Towers and the crash of Flight 93. Fr. Thompson, Rector of the Chapel, offered a prayer for all first responders, for those who died in the attacks and for all whose lives were forever changed on that tragic day.

Following the service, Father Tommy Thompson, rector of the Washington Memorial Chapel, led a procession to the grave of Louis J. Nacke II, one of the heroes of Flight 93, who is buried in the Chapel’s cemetery.

The Chapel will continue to honor the U.S. military throughout the year, starting with a special Veteran’s Day (also called Armistice Day) service on November 11 at 11 AM (service will begin with 11 tolls from the bourdon bell to commemorate Armistice Day).
