Governor, Anchorage mayor and religious leaders to speak at ‘God & Country’ 9/11 commemoration


    Civic and religious leaders from Alaska will gather in Anchorage on Sept. 11 to commemorate the tragic terrorist attacks that took the lives of nearly 3,000 men, women and children 20 years ago.

    Confirmed speakers include Gov. Mike Dunleavy, Anchorage Mayor Dave Bronson, Pastor Alonzo Patterson, Anchorage Police Dept. Chief Ken McCoy, USAF Lt. General David Krum and others. The hour-long event is being hosted by the Catholic Archdiocese of Anchorage-Juneau, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the Alaska Black Caucus.

    Beginning at 7 p.m., the program will consist of patriotic readings and musical performances that aim to recapture the spirit of service, patriotism, and unity that emerged from this monumental and life-changing day in America’s history. The event takes place at 13111 Brayton Dr. in Anchorage, near the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
