Police and fire departments honor 9/11 fallen

Memphis paid tribute to the September 11th victims in a solemn ceremony today.

A bagpipe procession began this morning's ceremony at St. Peter's Catholic Church. Leaders from the Memphis police and fire departments came out to honor their fallen comrades.

"This is just a little bit of token recognition to those, you can't repay what they've contributed but this is our opportunity to give something back and commemorate those...and respect those individuals," said firefighter Alvin Benson.

The procession left the church and went on to the memorial downtown.
