San Antonio – St. Mary’s University students made a moving tribute in remembrance of the ninth anniversary of September 11.
Before dawn, members of the St. Mary’s University College Republicans began placing 2,977 United States flags in Chaminade Field in honor of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Later in the morning, a couple hundred students gathered on the University’s Quad for a short prayer service, organized by University Ministry, and then placed the remaining flags. The flags stayed up through the weekend.
