A Statement by the Presidents of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and Institute of Medicine in Commemoration of the 10th Anniversary of 9/11
We join our fellow citizens in remembering the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and their families on the 10th anniversary of that tragic day. We are grateful to the nation’s first responders, and recall the heroism of emergency workers at Ground Zero in New York City and here at the Pentagon. And we are thankful to all those who have served to defend and protect our nation over the past decade.
