The video was created on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 and serves as a tribute to the Holy Cross men and women of the United States Navy. It was prepared by Schone Malliet and a friend using photos from the collection of O'Callahan Society Co-Chair, Bill McCarthy '76, Rear Admiral (Ret) who was a Captain commanding USS George Washington at the time of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. His ship was immediately stationed at New York City. The video was played during the HC football game halftime show on September 11, 2021 and again at the end of the year's O'Callahan Sociey Dinner to commemmorate the 80th anniversary of the Holy Cross NROTC Unit.
