BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - It has been 12 years since terror attacks riveted the nation. Several Kern County events memorialized the tragedy.
Between 200 and 400 people gathered at the Bakersfield Harley Davidson for the 7th annual Support Our Troops ride.
The group headed to the Minter Field Air Museum during their tribute.
"We do this every year so that we will not forget those who lost their lives in support of our country," said Ben Patten, organizer.
Riders paid $10 each to participate and funds are intended to support veterans of all eras.
Schools around the county took time to pay tribute to the fallen.
South High School's Junior ROTC held a special ceremony before school.
Bakersfield High School JROTC also honored the fallen with a wreath-laying and honorary detail.
