Baker Company Tribute to 9/11 from Iraq-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
This one is a picture that shows Marines in a formation that spells the message "9-11, WE REMEMBER" when taken from the air.
According to an article in The Herald of Rock Hill, South Carolina, this picture was taken September 11, 2003, the second anniversary of the Attack on America.
It is a group of Baker Company Marines who were still in Iraq on that date.
One of them, 1st. Lt. Andrew Shoemaker, wrote to his father, ""It is in remembrance of those that gave the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, and the reason that no matter how long we are here, we will continue to push and never forget why we serve,""It is in remembrance of those that gave the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, and the reason that no matter how long we are here, we will continue to push and never forget why we serve."
A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
“How are you all doing? The proud warriors of Baker Company wanted to do something to pay tribute to our fallen comrades. So since we are part of the only Marine Infantry Battalion left in Iraq the one way that we could think of doing that is by taking a picture of Baker Company saying the way we feel. It would be awesome if you could find a way to share this with our fellow countrymen. I was wondering if there was any way to get this into your papers to let the world know that “WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN” and are proud to serve our country.”
