Guam – It is now nearly nine years to the day since the burning and collapsing twin towers of New York’s World Trade Center and thousands of victims falling from the heights to their death dominated our TV screens and American lives.
Despite this tragic piece of American history and its death toll of nearly 3,000, the memories of even those who bore witness to this once unthinkable tragedy have begun to fade with time.
Vowing that 9/11 must not be forgotten, Senator Judi Guthertz, Chair of the Guam Legislature’s Military Buildup Committee on Friday will present a wreath and artwork recalling the events of that day to the United Service Organization [USO] at the Royal Orchid Hotel on Tumon Bay for display and reflection and to recognize the sacrifices of service members and their families who support the fight against terrorism.
Senator Guthertz said her intent is both to honor those who perished on 9/11 and those who have served in American military forces since then. “We shall never forget,” the Senator said
