McMorris Rodgers’ Statement on the 8th Anniversary of the September 11th Attacks

Sep 11, 2009

(Washington, D.C.)  Today, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers released the following statement regarding the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001:

“Eight years ago today, terrorists took the lives of innocent men, women, and children.  It’s important we pause today to remember those lives lost in New York, the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania, as well as the first responders who lost their lives during the rescue. 

“We must also remember not just today, but every day, the men and women who dedicate themselves to keeping our country safe.  Whether they are members of our Armed Forces, first responders or employees of government agencies, their efforts here and around the world protect the freedoms we enjoy here in the United States.

“The men and women of Fairchild Air Force Base and their families deserve special recognition.  I thank them and our community thanks them for their efforts in the Global War on Terrorism.”
