Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) applauds Congress for passing House Resolution 994, commemorating the sacrifices made by those defending our country and remembering those that were lost in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centers and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

Congressman Poe issued the following statement on the 5th Anniversary of 9/11:

It has been said that the actions of a few can change the course of a country. On September 11, 2001, the murderous attacks on our country did just that. Fortunately, the United States has grown stronger from that tragic day and is leading the fight against terror around the world. We must remain committed to ending terrorism and holding those responsible for supporting it accountable. Our country is safer today than we were five years ago, but we must never forget those who lost their lives and those on the front lines fighting to protect our freedom.

Congressman Poe serves on the International Relations Committee, Terrorism Subcommittee and member of the Congressional War on Terror Team. For more information regarding Congressman Poe, please visit our website,
