Those were among the 3,025 people whose lives were lost in terrorist attacks in New York and near Washington, D.C., one year ago.
They were remembered in Jefferson County on Wednesday.
With services in Port Townsend, Chimacum, Quilcene and Brinnon, Jefferson County residents solemnly remembered the one-year anniversary of the attacks that took a devastating toll on America.
“This nation was put to the test,” said the Rev. Wendell Ankeny during a service at the Port Townsend Boat Haven that drew 125 people.
The nation had stood tall in the face of attacks, he said.
“May we honor those who sacrificed their lives to defend our freedom,” said former Jefferson County Sheriff Mel Mefford. “Let us be highly resolved that they did not die in vain.”
At the Boat Haven, people lined up to read the names of hundreds of those who had died in the attack on the Pentagon in Arlington, Va.
Buttons were passed out bearing the names of victims.
