The University of Montana Army ROTC Color Guard and the UM VETS Office organized a ceremony Saturday evening at the Fallen Soldiers Memorial marking 20 years since the attacks on the nation on Sept. 11, 2001. 

UM and the Missoula community came together with flowers in hand to honor and remember the lives of the 43 Montanans who paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to the nation as well as other Americans who lost their lives on the day of the attacks and the thousands of families who have lost loved ones as a result of the overseas conflicts in the aftermath of 9/11.
