SAN ANGELO –When Goodfellow Air Force Base, Colonel Eugene Moore, III spoke at this morning’s 911 Memorial Service on Friday, September 9, 2022, he stated that our nation expected its 1st responders to be ready at all times and in all circumstances “to engage our nation’s adversaries wherever they exist and whenever they threaten our homeland.”

Colonel Moore stated he was thankful that communities like San Angelo provide support to our military and 1st Responders.

Among the invited city officials were: San Angelo City Manager, Daniel Valenzuela, Council members: Mr. Harry Thomas, and Mr. Larry Miller, SAPD Chief, Frank Carter, and, Fire Chief, Patrick Brody.

The 9 a.m. memorial service was held at Celebration Bridge, adjacent to the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts.
