Eighteen years after the attacks on September 11, we remember and mourn those lost in the vicious and cowardly assault on our nation. We must never let the tragic events of that day be forgotten.
We also honor the heroes, including many LIUNA members, who responded to, cleaned-up, and later rebuilt the World Trade Center and constructed the Flight 93 Memorial. This year, these brave men and women, many of whom suffer from debilitating health issues from exposure to hazardous materials in the aftermath, were finally granted the support they both deserve and urgently need with the permanent extension of the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund.
On behalf of myself, General Secretary-Treasurer Armand E. Sabitoni, and the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, we remember those lost on September 11 and share our sincere gratitude with those who responded with such courage and strength to the terrible attacks.
