BuyVet Remembers 911


Twenty years after four coordinated terrorist attacks killed 2,977 people on American soil, the nation remembers. 


Today we honor the brave men and women who serve and protect each day.  They risk their own lives to save the life of someone in need.  This represents the many faces that stepped up to Serve following the attacks on 911.  We will never forgot those that we lost, and those whose lives were impacted forever, 20 years ago.  

This is the greatest country in the world and the proof is in our people.  Strong, intelligent and resilient, that is what makes them who they are.  May God continue to bless and keep our Service Members, First Responders and the brave men and women of this country who risk it all to save a fellow American.
