LUBBOCK, Texas -

There are 1,000 American flags placed throughout Kastman Park in commemoration of 9/11.

This arrangement is open to the public, day and night. 2,753 victims died after American Airlines flight 11 and United flight 1-75 crashed into the twin towers. That includes 343 firefighters, 23 police officers and 37 port authority officers.

At the Pentagon, 184 people died when American flight 77 crashed and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, 40 passengers and crew members on United flight 93 died when they tried to re-take the plane from would-be terrorists.

Only 60 percent of the victims' remains have been positively identified by medical examiners.

A 9/11 memorial and prayer service will be tomorrow, starting at 12:00 p.m. at the Lubbock County Courthouse.

Community is invited to attend.
