SEVASTOPOL, Wis. (WFRV) – For two decades, a display has been placed on a property owned by Randy and Linda Schultz. Linda works for the American Red Cross and was called on September 11, 2001, to respond to New York and assist with the efforts. Linda told Local 5’s Eric Richards that she remembers everything about that day.

Linda was assigned to a tent located at Ground Zero and recalls what it was like to be there. “Right after the events unfolded, the World came together and cared so deeply about each other,” says Linda. The American Red Cross responds to various calls for help during a range of situations, including National Crisis, to assist anyone involved.

Included in this year’s display, the names of the 13 Soldiers who were killed in a bombing in Afghanistan recently.

Starting Wednesday, September 8, a video will be displayed at the location 4766 HWY-57 in Sturgeon Bay, nightly for anyone who wants to stop by. Additions will be made to the memorial display on Saturday, September 11 as well.
