Michiana continues to honor victims of 9/11 with Mishawaka memorial

Michiana is continuing to mourn and honor lives that were lost on September 11, 2001.

On Monday, the Mishawaka Medical Center held a memorial service.

Dozens of Mishawaka residents and community leaders, including Mayor Dave Wood, were in front of the 9/11 memorial which features a steel beam from one of the towers.

Mishawaka Fire Chief Brian Woodward says all first responders who served on that fateful day are prime examples of how he'd like his firefighters to lead.

"... they still went so it’s about courage, it’s about doing what were sworn to do, it’s about standing up having integrity pride and honor in ourselves, our department, our job as a whole, it's a brotherhood we honor them by going to work every day that way,” says Woodward.

Sunday marked the 15th year anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 9/11.
