idaho's 2017 9.11 moving tribute


9.11.2001. We all remember where we were. Now we head into the 16th anniversary, and we want to make sure this is still a day we recognize. 

The Mission. One flag, the Flag of Honor, bearing the names of every first responder and citizen killed during the attack will be passed from person to person in a 40 mile trek through the community. The Flag of Honor will be joined by many others throughout the day. Feel free to bring your own and be part of a unique tribute to commemorate 9.11.2001. 


At the end of the journey, we celebrate. Come out for a family friendly social with complimentary BBQ, drinks, and good company at the future home of the Mission43 Firebase, the Caldwell Veterans Memorial Hall

1700 Celebration kick-off with food, drinks, and hanging out!

1800 Flag arrives and closing ceremony

who can participate?

Everyone. Individuals, families, or groups are welcome to join in where you choose! No RSVP necessary, but we do recommend you contact the leg captain for the area you want to participate so they can keep you informed on the progress or any route changes. Moving Tribute participants will receive a complimentary t-shirt!

The route and timeline

We generally stay on the Greenbelt from Lucky Peak to Eagle Road. However, we do have law enforcement and first responders who will be providing an escort at points along the way. In that case, we will push off the Greenebelt and onto the main roads. The Rally Points are subject to change so we recommend you keep an eye on our Mission43 Facebook page on 9/11 for updates on the progress.
