Tributes to 9/11 are scheduled Monday in the Colorado Springs area with a military ceremony planned for Schriever Air Force Base.
Troops from the Pikes Peak region will remember 9/11 as they gather at Schriever. The 9 a.m. ceremony, which has rotated between local bases in recent years, will include speeches and the playing of taps.
"This ceremony is a reminder of why so many service members and first responders serve this nation and our communities, placing their lives on the line every day," Schriever said in a news release. "It also pays tribute to those who lost their lives in the attacks."
Colorado Springs will also host a gathering for civilians on Monday.
Mitchell High School off Potter Drive will host local police and firefighters at 9 a.m. during the school's annual commemoration of the attacks.
Mitchell has a special connection to the tragedy.
"There will be a special tribute to Ms. Kathryn Yancey LaBorie, a 1975 graduate of Mitchell High School who was a flight attendant aboard United Airlines Flight 175," the school said in a news release. "Her plane was the second aircraft to crash into the World Trade Center."
