Anniversary of 9/11

Today marks the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on our soil. Today, The Air Force Association joins millions in commemorating the lives of those who were taken on that day, the individuals who immediately responded and the men and women who have dedicated their lives to protect this country in the years following. Our Nation has been enriched by their service, dignity and patriotism that will forever be remembered.

Though 11 years later, our Airmen on Active Duty, Guard and Reserves and Civilians are still in harm’s way in Afghanistan and throughout the world on many assignments protecting the same freedoms that were violated on that day. They and their families all have our heartfelt support and our admiration for what they do in the defense of our country and its citizens.

Today, we salute them all!
