American Legion to remember those lost in 9/11 and Afghanistan

September 11, 2021 will mark the 20th anniversary of terrorist attacks on the United States, which killed some 3,000 people as well as an estimated 2,300 in the Afghan war since that day. Recently, 13 men and women were lost in that conflict, four of whom were from California — two from the Northern California Sacramento area. The American Legion Post 130 will honor all of these victims at 10 a.m. on Sept. 11 at the Grass Valley Veteran’s Hall’s front flag. Community members are invited to join in paying tribute to fellow Americans and soldiers lost.
