BISMARCK, N.D. – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Homeland Security Appropriations Committee, today released the following statement in observance of the 21st anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks committed against the United States. Today, Senator Hoeven will speak at the Team Red, White and Blue remembrance event held at the Global War on Terror Memorial near the North Dakota National Guard headquarters.

“As more than two decades have now passed since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, we must vow to never forget the tragic events that took place that day. America mourns the loss of the thousands of men and women who lost their lives in the horrifying attacks, and we’re remembering them and thinking of their loved ones today. At the same time, we extend our appreciation to the brave first responders who ran toward danger to help their fellow neighbor. As our nation continues to fight global terrorism, we are reminded that freedom is not free. We are grateful for the incredible men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who have answered the call to protect our great nation.”
