LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -

Gov. Matt Bevin was in Louisville on Monday night to remember victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and honor first responders and military members.

Bevin helped kick off a special memorial concert at Fourth Street Live organized by "Operation Helping Heroes." The non-profit offers support to active military, national guardsmen, veterans, first responders and their families.

"(They are) the people that we remember on a day who were the first to go in when everyone else was running out," Bevin said. "You probably remember exactly where you were on 9/11, and it's etched in your mind in a way that you'll never forget."

At the event, 400 Kentucky AmeriCorps volunteers were sworn in ahead of their upcoming year of service.

Fourth Street Live! restaurants also offered military and first responder discounts as a way to give thanks.
