A memorial to remember 9/11, the many lives lost and the rescue efforts in the days that followed was unveiled Sunday at Diamond in the Pines Park in Coram.

A plaque on the memorial lists the names of residents of Brookhaven and Riverhead towns who died in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

The memorial was organized largely through the hard work of Rocky Point High School teacher Richard Acritelli, the Rocky Point VFW post 6249 and the Town of Brookhaven.
