This Wednesday marks 18 years since the tragic attacks that shook the nation. Wednesday morning, a memorial ceremony will be hosted by Amarillo's first responders.

The ceremony will be held at the Texas Panhandle War Memorial at 4101 S. Georgia Street. It begins at 8:45 AM, and will last approximately 30 minutes.

The memorial ceremony will feature the Amarillo Fire Department Pipes & Drums, Amarillo Police Department's Rifle Team, and the honor guards of Amarillo Fire Department and Amarillo Police Department.

Even though it has been 18 years, the effects are still being felt. There are 22 more names of firefighters being added to the 9/11 Memorial Wall this year.
