9/11 Memorial Events

Date: September 8, 2017
Type: AFA Article

Sixteen years ago, the aviation industry changed forever when nineteen individuals committed an unthinkable act of terrorism against our nation. This action resulted in the loss of 35 of our colleagues - Pilots, Flight Attendants and Customer Service Agents - who perished that day along with thousands of other people.

We will never forget the first responders, the safety professionals, the heroes who gave their all in caring for the passengers on those flights that day and who perished while doing so. Memorial Services are held annually in towns and communities across our country. We encourage anyone seeking to attend a service to visit the United MEC website’s We Remember page to find the latest listing of events.

As we always do, we encourage each of you to recall the events of September 11, 2001 in the way that is best for you. We recognize this date can be stressful for some of us.  In every case, we ask that you consider your own needs first.  Should the need arise, please don't hesitate to reach out to your AFA – EAP representatives who are always available to assist.  We will Never Forget!
