Members of UND's ROTC spent Tuesday morning honoring those who were lost in the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.

Members took turns pulling guard and honoring the flag Tuesday morning in front of Memorial Union. A small, makeshift memorial for police officers and firefighters who lost their lives that day also was set up in front of the flag. The memorial also honored Army soldiers who have died in the War on Terror.

The annual ceremony finished with the playing of "Taps" by an ROTC member.
