WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator Steve Daines today released the following statement in remembrance of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the United States:
“Today, I join my fellow Montanans in pausing to remember and honor those who lost their lives in the September 11 terrorist attacks. We continue to honor the heroism and bravery of the first responders, firefighters, law enforcement officials and civilians who worked to save the lives of others.
“We also pause to honor the memory of the four Americans lost in the terrorist attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi. May we always remember Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
“We continue to be reminded of the persistent threat of terrorism that still exists today and are grateful for the countless American heroes who have stood watch around the globe, protecting and defending our country from those who seek to destroy it. Today, we are especially grateful for their selfless service.
“As proven time and again, our nation remains united in the face of tragedy. Freedom and unwavering liberty remains strong in our hearts and minds. We will always remember September 11.”
