From New York, Washington D.C and Pennsylvania, to Chicago, Americans across the country remember 9-11.

Ceremonies began  here with Chicago’s bravest paying tribute to their fallen comrades.

They gathered outside Engine 98 in Streeterville this morning ringing a bell and saluting those who lost their lives.

Chicago Fire Commissioner Jose Santiago says the best way for firefighters to honor the victims is to keep doing the job they do every day.

Chicago’s suburbs also commemorated he anniversary.

Naperville honored victims special to that community. The town has a memorial dedicated to  Naval Commander Dan Shanower, who died in the attack on the Pentagon.  The service will feature Roger Burgess, an assistant principal and counselor at Wheaton Christian Grammar School, as a speaker. Burgess was a teacher and coach to Todd Beamer, one of the passengers who tried to foil the hijacking of United Airlines Flight 93.
