"It is important that we also pay tribute to all who have selflessly served our country since 9/11, and to honor those who did not return home to their families. For their still grieving families, they are gone but not forgotten. May God bless those we remember today, and may He continue to bless the families affected by 9/11 and the Global War on Terror."
