NEW YORK (WABC) – Communities in the region of the three states are today honoring servicemen who gave their lives for their country.

In New York, Remembrance Day celebrations include an annual meeting at the Intrepid Museum of the Sea, Air and Space on the west side of Manhattan.

Hundreds of veterans and active-duty soldiers will be on hand as veterans unfurl a 100-foot American flag.

The event includes a plane flight.

Among the officials who will be present will be New York City Mayor Eric Adams.

Meanwhile, another type of commemoration is being held in Lower Manhattan on this holiday.

Monday marks the 20th anniversary of the official completion of rescue operations at the site of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Participants will honor not only those who died that day, but also those who fell ill and have since died from diseases related to 9/11.

They will be honored at the Glade of Remembrance on September 11.

There will be a guard of honor with members of the New York Police Department, FDNY, Port Police and the New York Department of Sanitation.

New York Governor Katie Hochul will also be present.

The ceremony will begin at 9:30 a.m.
