idaho's 2017 9.11 moving tribute

ABOUT THE 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. First responders will be escorting throughout the route and the public is invited to bring their own flag to run, walk, or ruck and be part of a special tribute to 9.11.2001. 

THE OLD GLORY BBQ AT THE END

At the end of the journey, we celebrate. Come out for a family friendly social with the Bang on the Wall Gourmet Burgers food truck, drinks from Bear Island Brewing, and good company at the future home of the Mission43 Firebase, the Caldwell Veterans Memorial Hall

4:30pm- Celebration kick-offs with food and drinks!

6:00pm Flag arrival ceremony
