Today most of us can still remember where we were on September 11, 2001.

Even though these young students weren't even born at the time, Golson Elementary School's 1st grade teacher Alison Williams wanted them to pay their respects to these emergency responders.

These students were extremely excited to meet some of their heroes on Friday. But the mood was a little different earlier at the emergency operations center.

A crowd of people paid their respects by dedicating a flag to those who lost their lives on that tragic day. Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts was the guest speaker and spoke on the price of freedom.

Two soldiers were among the guests and received standing ovations from Friday's crowd. The Marianna chapter of Woodmen of the World dedicated the flag and plaque to honor those who are no longer with us and those who still serve our country.

Woodmen of the world has presented almost 2-million American flags for the past sixty years.
