Warren Co. memorial dedicated to lives lost on Sept. 11

WARREN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

A memorial in Warren County was dedicated to the lives lost on September 11, 2001 including two Warren County residents who were in the towers when they collapsed.

A monument with two towers, a date no American will ever forget and two names Warren County residents will forever mourn. Wendy Faulkner, 47, and Robert Peraza, 30, found themselves on Sept. 11 being thrust into a permanent place in our country's and our county's history.

Peraza was working on the 104th floor of Tower One of the World Trade Center. Faulkner died in Tower Two. She was on a one-day business trip to New York City. Her husband, Lynn, was at Tuesday's ceremony.

"We sincerely hope this memorial will provide you with peace, pride and support as you go forward through the next chapters of your life," said Chief Jeff Kruithoff.

Former Bengals and professional football Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz also spoke praising the way Americans came together in the wake of the horrific attack.

"Eleven years later this is still an important date in our history and hopefully we will never forget this date as long as we live," he said.

Now a constant reminder of those lives lost will forever sit beneath the American flag in front of the Warrant County Court House. The monument cost $100,000, all of which came from private donations.

The Tri-State is also remembering six other victims of the Sept. 11 attacks who have ties to the area, Doug Cherry of Terrace Park, Miami University graduate Kelly Booms, John Jenkins, of Erlanger, Martha Reszke, UC graduate Cathy Salter and Cov. Cath. graduate Brian Williams.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
