9/11 Ceremony honors hometown victim


GENEVA, Ala. (WDHN) — Geneva’s second annual 9/11 ceremony took on added significance.

One of the nearly 3,000 Americans lost that day had roots in Geneva.

“We should never forget, never forget what happened to America that day,” Miriam Jean Spikes said. “The work that went into the ceremony is not a problem. We’ll do it again.”

Dr. Hammond was also an amateur car racer. He is credited with several discoveries for the U.S. Defense department prior to his tragic death aboard United Airlines Flight 175 on September 11th, 2001.
