REP. SANCHEZ HONORS 12th ANNIVERSARY OF SEPTEMBER 11th ATTACKS
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Loretta Sanchez (CA-46), senior member on the House Homeland Security and Armed Forces Committees released the following statement honoring the twelfth anniversary of the September 11th attacks.
“On a clear September morning twelve years ago, our nation was rocked by unimaginable tragedy. Today we remember the nearly 3,000 innocent Americans who lost their lives and honor the first responders who selflessly ran toward danger to save the ones they could.
“Today we also honor the courage and commitment of the members of our armed forces. Our men and women in uniform have given up so much to keep our nation secure and we are grateful every day for the sacrifices they have made and continue to make to keep us safe.
“Twelve years later, we stand united and stronger than ever. As a senior member on both the House Homeland Security Committee and the House Armed Services Committee, I have and will continue to work to make sure nothing like this will ever happen again.”
