REMEMBERING SEPTEMBER 11

Subject: REMEMBERING SEPTEMBER 11
September 11, 2012
The anniversary of the events of September 11th carries special meaning for all of us as members of the DHS family. We remember the attacks every day, but especially on this day, as they are the reason our Department was formed.
In the eleven years since September 11th, DHS has matured and our capabilities have grown, transforming how we approach homeland security.
We have made significant progress-strengthening relationships with federal, state and local partners, law enforcement, and first responders. We have forged new partnerships with community groups and the private sector. And we have empowered citizens-in hometowns across the country-to become active and engaged in keeping their communities safe.
All of you-the men and women of DHS-have been critical to these achievements. Together, we are helping make America safer, more resilient, and stronger than ever before.
Thank you for your service, for the many sacrifices you have made, and for your ongoing efforts to secure our Nation.
Yours very truly,

If geographic area is not a determinant to any extent in the District Captain's elected office (e.g., District Captain solely represents a program), then the District Captain shall be elected by all District Board members."
