Press Release

WASHINGTON— Tomorrow Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) will take part in the Pentagon Memorial Dedication in Arlington, VA to mark the 7th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.  Today he issued the following statement:

“Tomorrow I will join my fellow Americans to remember the heroes who so valiantly and courageously perished on September 11, 2001.  That terrorist attack, the worst in our history, aimed to destroy our nation, our freedom and our principles, but failed to do so. 

“Each year, Americans across the nation come together to honor the memory of the victims of the 9/11 tragedy and to show the world that we continue to stand together in defending our freedom and our democracy. 

“It is important that we never forget those who perished on 9/11 and those who answered the call of duty in the aftermath of tragedy and continue to defend our freedoms each day.  Our men and women in uniform are the reason why America continues to be free,” said Diaz-Balart.
