"Let US Never Forget ... September 11, 2001 ... known officially as "Patriot Day" ... when 2,997 innocents died and over 25,000 injuries occurred from the terrorist attacks ... along with the brave, dedicated efforts from the first responders, law enforcement, and troops to rescue survivors, and recover the fallen ... and ... their continued efforts to end the terrorist scourge and protect our beloved USA!
All Americans should spend a silent moment of proud remembrance for all the fallen and wounded brave U.S. troops involved in the War On Terrorism ... with special thoughts for the last 13 and 18 severely wounded ... who were among the 100+ killed and many more wounded in Afghanistan when a terrorist detonated a bomb concealed on him August 26, 2021 ... a few days before the remaining U.S. troops left Afghanistan ... ending 20 years of combat activities associated with the war on terrorism in Afghanistan."David Bancroft, USA Patriotism! founder
