Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mike Rogers (R-AL), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on the 22nd anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 attacks.
“Twenty-two years ago, our world was forever changed by the horrific terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001. Today, we remember the thousands of innocent lives that were lost and honor the many heroes who selflessly risked their lives to save others.
“Over two decades later, the threat our nation faces from terrorism has not subsided. Every day, brave men and women in our armed forces continue to fight against those who seek to harm our nation. It is only because of their service and sacrifice that the United States remains unbowed in the fight against evil.”
