Museum Adds New Exhibit Commemorating 9/11


It has been 20 years since the terrorist attacks brought death and destruction to the American homeland—and touched off a 20-year war in Afghanistan. To commemorate the nearly 3,000 lives lost on that September 11, 2001, the Broomfield Veterans Museum has installed a new exhibit that recounts the events of that tragic day.


Nineteen persons with a connection to Colorado were killed on 9/11—either because they were in the buildings that were hit by the hijacked planes or were in the planes themselves. Their stories are told in vignettes at the museum. For example, Kathryn LaBorie of Colorado Springs was the head flight attendant on United Airlines Flight 175 that crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center in New York, and Jason Dahl of Littleton was the chief pilot aboard United Airlines Flight 93 that crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. It it believed that passengers and crew members on Flight 93 fought with the hijackers in an effort to prevent the plane from reaching its target—thought to be either the White House or U.S. Capitol.


The new exhibit is scheduled to remain on display until later this year to remind visitors of the tremendous blow the attacks made on Americans’ feelings of security and changed the course of history.

The Broomfield Veterans Museum will host a special Flag Retirement Ceremony and Cookout on Saturday, June 12, 2021, beginning at 11:30 a.m. In honor of Flag Day, local veterans will kick off the ceremony with special remarks about the history and significance of the U.S. flag. North Metro Fire Rescue District and Broomfield Police Department's combined honor guard will lower the old flag for retirement and raise a new flag. A local scout troop will lead everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance, and special music will be performed as part of the ceremony.

Following the brief ceremony, the public is invited to help the museum retire hundreds of flags that have been donated from community members over the past year. Everyone is also invited to join in a patriotic picnic to celebrate the flag holiday.
