NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - It's been 11 years since the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. On Tuesday morning, SPAWAR in North Charleston paid tribute to the lives lost including one of their own.
The event featured bagpipers and choir music as commanding officers and employees remembered the more than 3,000 people who lost their live that autumn morning.
SPAWAR also paid tribute to one of its own who was killed in the Navy Command Center at the Pentagon.
"We want to remember them and also James Lynch contributions to this organizations, how he got up everyday to go to work like all our SPAWAR employees to get the job done for the war fighter, but unfortunately on that day he was killed," said Mark Glover, commanding officer at SPAWAR.
"He was called the candy man because he took around candy with him he always gave out candy, whenever he went out to meetings he was a very humble person," said Christopher Miller, an executive director at SPAWAR.
