GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Four members of the Greenville Public Safety Pipes and Drums are spending the 15th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks in New York City.
The four traveled there Thursday, and have already participated in a memorial parade.
Sgt. Scott Stanton with the Greenville Police is just one of the members in New York to pay tribute to those who lost their lives. Stanton grew up in New York, and lost several of his friends when planes flew into the World Trade Center towers.
“I’m sure it will be an emotional day,” Stanton said. “You know playing bag pipes for so long now I’ve kind of learned to put that aside while we play, I’m sure I’m going to be fine. But I’m sure I’ll have my own quiet moments afterwards where it will be emotional.”
Stanton said the four Greenville representatives will join others Sunday to play a tribute piece to the fallen before the New York Yankees game in Yankee Stadium.
