Phil Larson, a retired firefighter with the Round Hill Volunteer Fire Department in Washington, D.C., braves the rain at the 18th annual Healing Field in Sandy on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019, as he pays his respects to the men and women who lost their lives during the 9/11 attacks. Larson, a Sandy native, was one of the rescuers that responded to the attack on the Pentagon. Each of the more than 3,000 flags in the Healing Field represent those who lost their lives when terrorists commandeered airliners that subsequently crashed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a grassy field in Pennsylvania. The Healing Field also provides a platform to raise funds Honor 365, a Utah nonprofit that serves veterans.
