    YOKOSUKA, Japan (Sept.11, 2021) – Master-at-Arms 1st Class Ronald Peterson, from Fort Washington, Md., rings two bells in honor of the 9/11 victims during a twentieth anniversary remembrance held aboard U.S. 7th Fleet flagship USS Blue Ridge (LCC 19), Sept. 11, 2021. The attacks took place on Sept. 11, 2001, when terrorists from the militant Islamist group al-Qaeda hijacked four commercial airliners and crashed two aircraft into the World Trade Center complex in New York, one into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and a fourth that crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pa., after the plane's passengers attempted to regain control of the flight from its hijackers. Blue Ridge is the oldest operational ship in the Navy and, as 7th Fleet command ship, actively works to foster relationships with allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific Region.
