Senator Guthertz To Present Wreath to USO Marking 9/11

Guam News - Guam News

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
