On Friday, September 11th, 2015, cadets from Seneca Battalion participated in St. Bonaventure University’s yearly 9/11 remembrance ceremony, set at 12:20 at the memorial stone placed between Swan and Plassman halls.

After a presentation of the colors by a Seneca Battalion color guard and the singing of the national anthem, members of Seneca Battalion listened to a speech by Father Francis Di Spigno alongside a crowd of mourners from St. Bonaventure University.  After Father Di Spigno was finished, students led the group in a prayer before the crowd was allowed to approach the memorial stone and place flowers on it.

After most of the crowd had paid their respects, members of Seneca Battalion approached the memorial and lay down their flowers as one.  They remained behind the stone until the crowd was completely gone and they too were dismissed.

Seneca Battalion may have moved on, but will never forget.
