Alaskan Congressman Don Young released the following statement today in remembrance of the attacks 11 years ago today:
"Today is a day not only to remember the lives lost 11 years ago, but also a day to thank our first responders -- including the brave police officers and firefighters who risked their lives that day. With troops serving in harm's way across the globe -- including many Alaskans -- it's crucially important for the American people to continue to support our soldiers and their families. I am a firm believer that we are the greatest nation in the world due to the extraordinary work of our military men and women. I urge all Alaskans to honor those who lost their lives 11 years ago today -- and also say a prayer for our men and women who continue to fight to protect our freedoms."
