Community members across the region also aim to honor the lives lost on 9/11, like the Pocatello AMVETS.
Philip Clifton, commander at Post 1 for the American Veterans in Pocatello, says this is the first luncheon they've held for a 9/11 memorial.
Pocatello Fire Department, first responders, Pocatello Police Department, Mayoral Candidate David Worley, and community members gathered for the event.
As commander of post 1, Clifton said the event served as a way of bringing people together.
Clifton says a tragic event like 9/11 should be a lesson to all of us; to remember the lives lost and realize that we as a nation are still a community.
"My viewpoint is, in being commander of the AMVETS post 1, is to get people back together,” said Clifton.
“To remember what it was like 9/12 and 9/13 and going forward from there and cohesive American people got,” said Clifton. “We can bring Pocatello together that way and give up our differences for a change and really work on being a community."
