ROTC 9/11 Memorial Stair Run held at Tucker Stadium
Twenty years following the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, Tennessee Tech University’s ROTC Golden Eagle Battalion gathered with members of the campus community to honor the lives lost that day.
Saturday morning, the group gathered in Tech’s Tucker Stadium to hold a 9/11 Memorial Stair Run at Tucker Stadium on Saturday, starting at 8:30 a.m. The event is one of several activities during Saturday's game day, dedicated to the memory of the lost, while also recognizing military members, first responders and health care workers.
Members of Tech ROTC's Golden Eagle Battalion wore 45-pound backpacks to simulate the firefighters' gear as they climbed up the World Trade Center that fateful day.
