'9/11 Never Forget' mobile exhibit at Ford Museum

9/11 exhibit on display at Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - Sunday, it will be 15 years since terrorists hijacked four planes and crashed them into the Pentagon, a Pennsylvania field and the World Trade Center towers in New York City.

To help people remember and learn about September 11 the “9/11 Never Forget" mobile exhibit is at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in Grand Rapids this weekend.

The exhibit has pictures, artifacts, news clips and recordings of police and fire radio transmissions from that day.

Retired members of the Fire Department of New York who survived 9/11 are here with the exhibit to tell visitors where they were, what they saw and what they did.

“We want people to see the sacrifices our first responders made that day,” explains retired FDNY Battalion Chief John Carroll.

“Children who weren’t born yet or were too young to understand what happened, we'd like them to come through the exhibit.

"We tell them what happened and show them the sacrifices everybody made and show them freedom is not free in this country."

The “9/11 Never Forget" mobile exhibit will be at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum through Sunday.

Also on Sunday, a Community Day of Remembrance led by Boy Scouts is also planned at the museum. There is no charge to go through the mobile exhibit, and admission to the Presidential Museum on 9/11 is also free.
