Dial Global’s Michael Smerconish led 400 Philadelphians on a bus trip to the Flight 93 memorial dedication in Shanksville, Pennsylvania on the morning of 9/10. For the past three years, Smerconish has encouraged listeners to support the Flight 93 Memorial through sales of the 9/11 pin, which has contributed over $250,000 to the Memorial.
On Saturday, Michael joined over 3,000 people, including firemen, police, and military personnel in Shanksville for the Flight 93 Memorial dedication for the tenth anniversary of 9/11.
Some photos from the event, from The Philly Post’s Jeff Fusco:
