Guam - To remember our island's fallen heroes, the University of Guam Americorps members will be hosting a 9-11 display in the Student Center Rotunda at the Mangilao campus until September 14. For UOG student Kuuleilani Fillmed, the memorial is special because although she is away from home in the FSM, she can remember her cousin, U.S. Army Specialist Eric M. Finniginam.

"The saddest part is I didn't even get to say goodbye when he left," she said.

A memorial ceremony will be held on Sunday at 8:30am. Names of the fallen will be read and followed by a candlelighting ceremony.
