Idaho Governor, Others Remember September 11 Attacks
While family members gathered at Ground Zero in New York this morning to remember the September 11 terror attacks in 2001, another group gathered in Boise at the new Idaho Fallen Soldier Memorial.
Governor Butch Otter and his wife Lori read the names of Idaho service men and women killed since 9-11. Otter and the First Lady read 62 names, including those of seven servicemen who died in the last year. "As we read through each of those names Lori and I both reflected back on the times we spent with the families and the funerals that we went to all over the state. And adding those seven new names was also kind of sad."
Otter says he was in Congress and in Washington D-C when the Pentagon was hit during the terror attacks.
