It has been 15 years since September 11. What has changed for those impacted by the attacks?

This year, the group America’s Heartland Remembers placed 7,021 flags on Art Hill to commemorate fallen military men and women killed in the war on terror since September 11, 2001. The display, taken down on Sept. 12, 2016, is called “Flags of Valor.”

Sunday marked the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. On Monday’s St. Louis on the Air, we lookrf back at the past decade and a half and consider what has changed for those impacted by the attacks.

St. Louis Public Radio reporter Mary Delach Leonard has reported on the milestone anniversaries of the attacks. Recently, she spoke with those connected with and impacted by the terrorist attacks on that day as the anniversary approached. She joined St. Louis on the Air host Don Marsh for this discussion.
