U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., issued the following statement Sunday ahead of the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, which took the lives of nearly 3,000 Americans.

We will spend the rest of our lives remembering what happened on that day of unimaginable horror. The memory of those who were lost has not faded. Every step we take in the fight against terrorism is in their honor and in pursuit of a safer future for all Americans. We are grateful for the hundreds of thousands of men and women in uniform fighting every day to protect our nation and defend our freedom," Wicker said.
