Crapo Remembers Idaho Victims On 9/11 Anniversary

Washington, DC - Idaho Senator Mike Crapo, who participated in Congressional commemorative events today, issued this statement on the anniversary of the attack on the U.S. on September 11, 2001:

"Today is the seventh anniversary of the attack on September 11, 2001. Those events heightened our national awareness of the external threats that our nation and our democratic values face. In an increasingly inter-connected world, we have to be vigilant, and boldly meet this new challenge on every front and we must not ever forget the events that took place that day. We honor the memory of those who lost their lives, including two Idahoans, Ronald Vauk of Nampa and Brady Howell of Sugar City, both of whom were at the Pentagon at the time of the attack. We express our sincere gratitude to all of those who continue to fight today to keep us safe."
