Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter spoke to a large group gathered at the Idaho Fallen Heroes Memorial Wednesday morning in Boise to celebrate and commemorate the lives of those lost fighting the post-9/11 wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Some of the people in the crowd were families of Idaho soldiers who died in those wars.
Speaking to the crowd, Otter asked everyone to pause and remember that day 12 years ago, and the people who made the “ultimate sacrifice” in response to it.
