Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., today offered the following comments on the seventh anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on America:
“I will never forget where I was the moment I learned of the terrible tragedy befalling our nation on Sept. 11, 2001. None of us will. The shock and horror of that day was overwhelming. Terrorists not only attacked Americans on U.S. soil, they struck out at our values, our way of life and freedom itself.
“Seven years later, we remember our loved ones who lost their lives during the attacks and the rescue efforts, as well as those who died while serving our country overseas in the war against terror. Our military men and women have made immense progress in securing a bright future and a safe world for our children and grandchildren, and I am forever grateful for everything they have done to ensure the preservation of our nation. We will never forget their bravery and sacrifice.
“It has been a long road, and our fight is not yet finished. To the courageous men and women serving our country – thank you. Thank you for protecting our nation and our freedom.”
