VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Firefighters from Moody Air Force Base also paused to remember the victims and heroes of 9/11.

They held a short ceremony on base where all the firefighters were reminded of the sacrifices made that day and the actions that inspired some to join the service.

"It just reminds me of the importance of my job. That at any moment you may be called to lay aside yourself and sacrifice whatever you have, do whatever you can to save a life or to get someone out of a burning building," says Airman First Class Carlos Tirado.

The Moody Airmen honored the heroes of 9/11 but also paused to remember their own heroes who have died over the years.
