Remembering 9/11
David Cortez, a California Task Force 8 member, holds his hand over his heart during a small 9/11 Memorial ceremony to begin Sept. 11 at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The task force members from all over the country were part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s responder unit positioned at Eglin due to Hurricane Irma. More than 500 FEMA responders were housed at Eglin throughout the weekend. The teams await orders to move into areas affected by the Hurricane Irma. (U.S. Air Force photo/Samuel King Jr.)
