(KTAL/KMSS) – Although the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020 caused the cancellation of many events commemorating the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, there are still some taking place across the country and around the ArkLaTex and memorials that remain open to visit.

Memorials around the ArkLaTex area include a piece of the Pentagon on display at the Texarkana Regional Airport, where a small memorial event will be held on Sept. 11 at 8 a.m.
