On Sunday, September 12, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. we welcome you to join Easterseals Massachusetts and the 215th Army Band for a tribute concert at Mechanics Hall in Worcester to mark a date in history that forever changed our nation.

Sunday, September 12th at 3 p.m. 

Mechanics Hall in Worcester, MA

We are immensely grateful to bring neighbors together for the Enduring Freedom Community Concert headlining the 125th Army Band of the Massachusetts National Guard.  This special event will acknowledge the 20th anniversary of September 11, remember those who lost their lives in these terrorist attacks on our land, and raise awareness about the unique needs of Post-9/11 Veterans who sacrificed so much during Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, New Dawn, Inherent Resolve and the missions that continue around the world.

It is, indeed, a privilege to have this group of talented musicians and defenders of freedom join ESMA and our sponsors for this once-in-a-decade community concert. With the current plan in place for public events in Massachusetts, we anticipate hosting over 1000 attendees from cities and towns throughout the state, as well as many political leaders and advocates for Veterans and military families.



When faced with the uncertainty, challenges and overwhelming change that often accompany a Veteran’s joyful homecoming, Easterseals Massachusetts is there for support and reliable information 24/7. This mission is big and requires significant community investment — from our individual neighbors to our corporate partners. We invite you to join us in service for all the brave hearted men and women who protect our freedom and way of life.

“This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this this time. None of us will ever forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world.”

~ President George W. Bush

September 11 Address to the Nation from the Oval Office, Washington, D.C.

We Answered the Call

Over the last two decades, 2.5 million troops have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Nearly 50,000 Veteran men and women from Massachusetts answered the call of duty, and sacrificed to protect our country and uphold our freedom following the deadly terrorist attacks on September 11.

Welcome Home

At Easterseals, we know the mission does not end when a Veteran returns home from active duty.  We know, because many members of our team were there, too.  That's why we provide innovative services and programs in communities where veterans, their families and caregivers live and work.  That's how we proactively address the problems that can prevent our Veterans from fulfilling their dreams.
