Laredo Sector Border Patrol participated in 9/11 ceremonies at area public schools in Laredo, Texas.
In solemn and touching ceremonies held at both Trautman Middle School and the Vidal M. Treviño School of Communications and Fine Arts, the Border Patrol helped remember the sacrifice of first responders, law enforcement officers and those who perished 17 years ago in the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington D.C. and a field in rural Pennsylvania.
“The men and women of the U.S. Border Patrol remember that day when the nation lost nearly 3,000 people. That day is a reminder that we must never waiver from our commitment to protecting our nation. The Border Patrol honors the victims of that terrible attack and the heroes who selflessly ran to their aid and who inspire us every day,” said Laredo Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens.
Since 2001, the U.S. Border Patrol has gained unprecedented support through the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection. The dedicated men and women of the Border Patrol will continue to work with honor and integrity to safeguard the American people, our homeland, and our values. Honor First!
