St. Lucie County law enforcement memorial service will be at 7 pm, May 12, at St. Bernadette's Catholic Church, 350 N.W. California Blvd., Port St. Lucie
The St. Lucie County 2011 law enforcement memorial service and 10th anniversary 9/11 commemorative will be Thursday, May 12, at 7 p.m., at St. Bernadette's Catholic Church, 350 N.W. California Blvd., Port St. Lucie.
All of the county's law enforcement/emergency services agencies will participate: the Fort Pierce Police Department, Port St. Lucie Police Department, St. Lucie County Fire District and St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office.
In addition to honoring the memories of the 10 officers who lost their lives in the line of duty in St. Lucie County, the service will also honor the memory of former Fort Pierce Police Officer CeeCee Ross-Lyles.
On Sept. 11, 2001, she was a United Airlines flight attendant on Flight 93 when she and others aboard lost their lives preventing terrorists from flying the plane to Washington, D.C., where it would have been part of the terrorist attack on America masterminded by the late Osama Bin Laden.
The plane crashed in rural Pennsylvania, and all those aboard lost their lives. It is believed the four terrorists who hijacked the plane after it left Newark International Airport intended to crash the plane into the U.S. Capitol or the White House.
Also at the service will be a four-foot-high cross made from scrap metal recovered from the rubble of the World Trade Center's twin towers in New York City which were destroyed in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack.
