Pfeiffer University remembers 9/11 at Hefner VA
Pfeiffer University students and staff commemorated the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks by serving veterans at the W.G. ěBillî Hefner VA Medical Center in Salisbury.
The 15-member group escorted veterans to a 9/11 memorial chapel service, delivered cards and a sign created by Pfeiffer students, and spent time visiting with those who have served the U.S. in a variety of military service roles.
During the chapel service, Rev. Ethel Bamberg-Reavis, chaplain at the Medical Center, asked attendees to remember the victims and first responders by recalling that in the midst of the despair that day, there were many who said, ěI want to help.î
ěIt is rewarding to serve veterans who, unfortunately, are sometimes forgotten even on a day as significant as September 11,î said Melissa Roberts, student community partner coordinator for Pfeiffer. ěWe are permanently indebted to them.î
