Sept. 11, 2001 – 9-11 – seems to be one of those days that people vividly remember even now, well more than a decade after the event.

Sheridan Media talked to three of those who attended Tuesday's 9-11 ceremonies at Sheridan Fire and Rescue, asking them to recall their memories of that day. Among them was Boot Hill, now a Sheridan County deputy sheriff but a member of the Sheridan city police force on that day in 2001.

Greg Luhman, who's a captain with Sheridan Fire and Rescue, had been with the department seven years at the time of the event.

Luhman said he knew, as a firefighter, that there were going to be catastrophic failures of the Twin Towers building.

Sheridan attorney Bob Wyatt said he was in Cheyenne that day, attending professional education provided by the Wyoming State Bar.

Luhman said the Sheridan Fire Department at the time had a woman at the National Fire Academy in Maryland, so there were concerns about her. He said the academy locked down the campus for a time because no one knew where a next attack might be.

The remembrance ceremonies are an annual event for Sheridan Fire and Rescue.
