U.S. Attorney’s Office remembers 9/11

Minkler honors members of law enforcement and the U.S. military for their service

INDIANAPOLIS - United States Attorney Josh J. Minkler remembers September 11, 2001. On that fateful day, 18 years ago today, nearly 3000 lives were lost due to a terrorist attack on American soil. Many lives were changed forever on that day, and all of us were personally touched by these horrific events.   

“First responders accept the call of duty every day, without hesitation, charging head first into often harrowing and unknown circumstances,” said Minkler. “This day was no different. I applaud the bravery of these men and women. I am grateful to them for their immediate response and thank them for their service.”

The U.S. Attorney’s Office proudly stands with the men and women of law enforcement, the U.S. military and all other first responders, who tragically lost their lives during the events of that day, and following their participation in the massive cleanup project of the twin towers. We stand united; we honor the courage and the heroism displayed by these individuals on that day, and in the many months following the attack.

In the shadow of this tragedy, we grieved as a nation, but we also became united, patriotic and we celebrated our great nation, together. We continue to honor the men and women that were the heroes of that day. We will never forget.
