Flags At Half-Staff Today For 9-11 11 Sep 13

Governor Dayton has ordered that all flags fly at half-staff today (WED), on the 12th anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attacks.  At least three Minnesotans were killed that day.  Thomas Burnett Junior of Bloomington was on United Flight 93 and is credited with helping bring down the hijacked plane in Pennsylvania, preventing terrorists from crashing into the US Capitol.  Sergeant Max Beilke from Alexandria died in the attack on the Pentagon.  And Gordy Aamoth Jr of Hopkins perished in the World Trade Center attacks in New York City.  Aamoth called his family to say he was okay after the first plane struck the north tower, but never called home after the second plane hit the south tower where he was working on the 104th floor.
