Congressman Visclosky issued the following statement to commemorate the 11th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks:
"Today marks the 11th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93. We still grieve for our friends and loved ones among the 3,000 who perished on that day. Many of us still recoil at the sight of the destruction that occurred in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania. All of us remember, in our heads and in our hearts, the heroic deeds of our first responders and a nation that found strength through neighbor leaning on neighbor and friend leaning on friend.
This is a day not only to remember the lives lost, but to extend our hopes and well-wishes to those still living and serving our country in uniform. I remain committed to the safety and security of the tens of thousands of men and women serving in Afghanistan and all those serving our country around the globe. Let us never forget that our mission is not complete until every first responder and every active duty service member and every veteran knows that we will honor their service in word and in deed."
