Recalling the "sound of freedom" on the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks

On the afternoon of Sept. 11, 2001, and for several weeks following the terrorist attacks, this was the only sound (and sight) over the Portland Metro area.

On this tenth anniversary of 9-11, the Oregon National Guard and the Oregon Military Department would like to thank those brave pilots and the Airmen who kept them flying for their collective service and sacrifice, and for keeping us safe.

Thank you to all military service members around the world, who continue to put their lives on hold, and on the line, so that we may enjoy the freedoms afforded to us as Americans.
