La Crosse – Today, U.S. Rep. Ron Kindmade the following statement commemorating the seventeenth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks:
“September 11, 2001 is a day that forever changed our country. The images of the falling towers, the collapsed Pentagon, and the ruins of Flight 93 strewn across the field in Pennsylvania will forever haunt our national memory.
But, the memories of that fateful day also show America’s resilience, and the heroism of our first responders, police officers, fire fighters and volunteers that risked their lives on behalf of the victims.
On the 17th anniversary, we remember the thousands of innocent lives lost, and honor the sacrifice of those who risked their lives to help rebuild our nation and keep America safe. We will never forget.”
