Patriot Day, Sept. 11

Designated in memory of the 2,977 killed in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Patriot Day is a discretionary day of remembrance.
The President requests that the American flag be flown at half-staff and also asks Americans to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 a.m., the time the first plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center on 9/11.
