Students from both Travis and Scandia elementary schools on Travis Air Force Base walked to remember and pay tribute to those that lost their lives during the 9/11 terrorists attack 17 years ago.
Gathered Tuesday on the lawn next to the base’s Airman and Family Readiness Center, the nearly 1,000 students from kindergarten to sixth grade listened to their classmates sing patriotic songs and recite poems.
Travis Elementary School Principal Brian Howard talked to the students about the significance of the day.
“You walk to show support to victims, survivors and families of the September 11, 2001 attacks,” he said.
