SEYMOUR JOHNSON AIR FORCE BASE, N.C. (AP) — The worst terrorist attack on American soil is being remembered in assorted ways by North Carolina’s military and civilians.

The 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks is being commemorated Wednesday with a host of memorial events including a day of service to honor the 9/11 victims, survivors and first responders.

Raleigh’s Activate Good alliance is helping organize service projects including making pillows for breast cancer patients, painting homes with Habitat for Humanity, writing letters for the troops, and collecting food for a food pantry.

At Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, the 4th Fighter Wing is scheduled to hold several memorial events. A ceremony slated for the base firehouse includes a 21-gun salute, a slideshow illustrating the events of Sept. 11, 2001, and several speakers.
