Congressman Larry Bucshon (IN-08) released the following statement recognizing September 11, 2001.
Congressman Bucshon (IN-08) states:
"As a nation, we honor the 11th anniversary of the horrible tragedies of 9/11, but also recognize the heroes from that fateful day. During a time that devastated our country, we came together as Americans to stand up to terror and unite as a nation.
"As the single greatest attack on American soil during our lifetimes, I would like to especially honor the first responders, soldiers, neighbors, and strangers that rushed to aide their fellow citizens during a time of despair. I would also like to honor the citizens that volunteered for the armed services and went into harm's way to defend the freedoms for which America stands.
"While time continues to pass, the sadness of that day must not be forgotten while the patriotism displayed as a response should continue to be embraced."
