|Time:||All Day Event|
While Patriot Day is not a Federal Holiday, it is a United States national observance that honors the memory of those who were killed in the September 11th attacks. It was first observed in 2002, after the proclamation by President George W. Bush.
On Patriot Day, the national flag is flown at half-mast on all United States government buildings and establishments. Individuals are also encouraged to display flags on their homes. Many of us were touched by the events of that day and a moment of silence is traditionally observed at 8:46 AM.
