WASHINGTON, D.C. -
From: Representative Mike Rogers Press Office;

Congressman Mike Rogers made the following statement today in remembrance of the 12thanniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks and the first anniversary of the deadly attack on Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

"No matter where you were on September 11, 2001, we all remember when we got the news of the terrorist attacks on our homeland.  Last year, we received more tragic news as we lost American lives in the Benghazi, Libya attack.  Despite their cowardly attacks, the resolve and spirit of our nation will never be diminished. On this September 11th and as with every day, I hope we will all remember those lives lost, the families whose worlds were destroyed and keep praying for our great country.  God Bless America."

 Rogers serves as Chairman of the Strategic Forces subcommittee on the Armed Services Committee and is a senior member of the Homeland Security and Agriculture committees.
