On the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette community will remember the victims, including Robert Hymel, an alumnus who was killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

A ceremony will be held at UL Lafayette’s 9/11 Memorial, which is near the intersection of Girard Park Drive and Saint Mary Boulevard on the grounds of the Alumni Center. The event will begin at 10:15 a.m.

It will include presentations by the UL Lafayette ROTC, the Student Government Association and campus ministries. UL Lafayette President Dr. Joseph Savoie will also speak.

Hymel, a 1969 graduate and decorated Vietnam War veteran, was working as a civilian at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., when terrorists hijacked three planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon, and an empty field in Pennsylvania.
