NEW YORK (NNS) -- Sailors from USS Carney (DDG 64) paid tribute to the victims of Sept. 11, during a NATO wreath-laying ceremony at Ground Zero.
"We will always remember and honor the innocent people who died here," said Carney Commanding Officer Cmdr. Brendan McLane. "Today, we recommit ourselves to freedom and liberty, the causes for which they gave their lives."
Carney crew members were joined by sailors from the NATO Military Alliance during the event, including representatives from Scotland and the Netherlands.
The remembrance ceremony was followed by a tour of the 9/11 Tribute Center, a museum created by 9/11 family members, where Sailors listened to personal accounts from that tragic day and got a first-hand look at artifacts collected from Ground Zero after the attacks.
Carney arrived in New York Sept. 8 as part of a weeklong series of events marking the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's arrival to the city.
