Milledgeville became the first city in Georgia to fly the historical “Ground Zero 9/11” flag in remembrance of the hundreds of civilians, including firefighters and police officers, killed in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. The World Trade Center, which had been a major landmark in New York City for decades, was completely destroyed when terrorists deliberately flew two commercial airplanes into the twin towers. The date is one of the saddest days in American history. A local ceremony took place last Thursday afternoon in front of the flag pole at Milledgeville Fire Rescue Services headquarters on Thomas Street. Milledgeville Fire Rescue Services Battalion Chief J. Taylor said it was truly an honor and an unforgettable experience for him and several other local firefighters to have had the opportunity to participate in such a special ceremony.
