The entire football team of the Army Black Knights football team carried American flags as they ran onto the field on Saturday, the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks, in their game against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.

WATCH:

On September 11, 2001, 19 al Qaeda terrorists hijacked four airplanes to carry out suicide attacks against the U.S. Two of the planes were flown into the two main World Trade Center towers in New York City, one was flown into the Pentagon, and the fourth plane crashed into a field in Pennsylvania after passengers fought the terrorists and prevented the plane from being flown into a building.

Nearly 3,000 people were killed during the attacks and thousands more died in subsequent years from a variety of health issues stemming from that day and on the battlefield in what became a multi-trillion dollar Global War on Terrorism.
