9/11 reminders felt on Mississippi's Gulf Coast, too

Present-day reminders of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks are all around South Mississippi. Some are in obvious places such as the airport, where security was beefed up to prevent hijackings like those on 9/11. Other local reminders are less obvious. About 70 Mississippians have died in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to an archive compiled by Military Times.
