The Grand Strand remembers 9/11
Folks along the Grand Strand remembered the tragic events that killed thousands of people 18 years ago in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
American flags were flown over bridges around the Myrtle Beach area, including over George Bishop Parkway where members of the Rolling Thunder motorcycle group walked the bridge Wednesday morning.
“We have been doing this for many, many years,” said David Maxwell with Rolling Thunder, Chapter 3. “This here is to make sure we never forget what happened on 9/11. A lot of us care about how great this country is and what we stand for.”
The American Legion Post 111 lined the Main Street bridge in the City of Conway to honor those who were lost.
Municipalities and agencies around the Grand Strand also hosted events to remember the attacks on September 11.
