DOVER, Del. - More than 200 people, including first responders, and service members, on Wednesday attended an annual ceremony at the Air Mobility Command Museum in Dover honoring first responders to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 and the nearly 3,000 people who died in the events of that day.

The ceremony featured a recounting of what happened on that day by Michael Hurley, the former director of operations at the World Trade Center.

In an interview, Hurley said ceremonies like the one at Dover Air Force Base are important 18 years after 9/11 because many members of the youngest generation of Americans do not have memories of the event.

"People graduating high school, next year, will not have been alive in 2001. To them, that's sort of a distant ancient history to them so things like this keep those memories alive," he said.

The event concluded with the playing of Taps by and the placement of a wreath next to a 9/11 monument at the museum in Dover.

    Amy Kyle's family has had connections to the Fenwick Island area for generations and enjoys the beach inside the state park that bears the town's name.

    But Kyle said she's concerned for the park and greater community because of discussions involving the State of Delaware and a Danish company seeking to build a transmission facility for an offshore wind farm --- in exchange for $18 million in improvements like increased parking capacity.
