Remember 9/11......................

Never Forget..................



September 11, 2001 remains one of the darkest days in the history of America. On that day, Al-Qaeda terrorists crashed two airliners into the Twin Towers of the New York World Trade Center. A third plane crashed into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. later that morning. A fourth jet was headed towards another target in Washington, D.C. The plane was forced down by passengers near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. There were no survivors on any of these flights. All together 2,974 victims and 19 hijackers died in these attacks.


Nine years have passed since Al Qaeda orchestrated the deadliest attack ever on U.S. soil, claiming nearly 3,000 lives. But reports from the New York State Health Department suggest the carnage may not have ended that day. More than 800 responders to the World Trade Center ruins have died -- some, advocates say, from illnesses related to their heroic efforts. One advocate says the actual total of deaths is likely higher -- and growing.


Never Forget and Always Remember those who perished on that fateful day.

Never Forget and Always Remember to pay tribute to the many who continue to defend our nation here and abroad.
