NEWPORT NEWS -- A traveling memorial to those who were lost on 9/11 will be on display at Newport News Fire Station 9 in Denbigh Wednesday.

FDNY Rescue 4 now serves as a mobile memorial to educate, honor and remember the events of 9/11 and the 343 firefighters, 23 police officers, and 45 Port Authority personnel killed as they tried to rescue those who were trapped in the collapsing World Trade Center.

Newport News Professional Firefighters Association Local 794 is hosting the Rescue Remembrance Project at 11 a.m.

The station address is 14417 Old Courthouse Way, Newport News.
