Origin of Patriots Day

Patriot Day was signed into law on November 30, 2001, by President George W. Bush as an annual observance to remember those who were inijured or died on September 11, 2001.  In 2009 President Barack Obama expanded the commemoration to recognize it as a National Day of Service and Remembrance.  It is not a federal holiday, but all United States flags accross the country are flown at half-staff.
