In the United States, Patriot Day, observed as the National Day of Service and Remembrance occurs on September 11 of each year in memory of the people killed in the 2001 September 11 attacks.

In the immediate aftermath of the attacks, President George W. Bush, proclaimed Friday September 14, 2001, as a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance for the Victims of the Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001.

Patriot Day is not a federal holiday; schools and businesses remain open in observance of the occasion, although memorial ceremonies for the victims are often held. 

Typically, the American Legion Willman-Fee Post 14 raises the Avenue of Flags in honor of Patriot Day, however due to wet conditions and storms predicted later today, the flags were not displayed.
