Tiffin Police and Fire All Patriots Memorial, located at Washington and Water streets near downtown Tiffin, honors those who were affected by the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It remembers those who died that day and also those public safety personnel killed in the line of duty in Tiffin.
All three sites of the terrorist attacks are represented in the memorial. It features a beam from the World Trade Center resting upon a pentagon-shaped base and a mound representing the site where the plane crashed in Shanksville, Pa.
The All Patriots Memorial is just that. It is not only a memorial to the men and women who bravely gave their lives on Sept. 11, 2001, and to our own fallen brothers and sisters, but a memorial to the attitude that was born of that day: A deep sense of patriotism felt nationwide.
That outward expression of patriotism comes in many different forms, and this memorial is dedicated to all of you, whether you gave your life, gave your blood, gave your time, deployed or enlisted in the military, opened your wallet, or just opened your heart with prayer for your fellow countrymen.
To “All Patriots,” this memorial is for you.
