AFGE Members Protecting Homeland After 9/11

Sixteen years ago on September 11, 2001, the course of American history changed forever. Union workers were there that day — working in the buildings that were struck, flying on the airplanes that were used as weapons, charging into the chaos in the seconds and minutes after the attacks to save as many lives as possible, and conducting rescue and recovery efforts in the hours and days that followed.

Today, AFGE remembers all of those who perished in the horrific terrorist attacks and honors the survivors of that tragic day.

Since 9/11, AFGE members continue to work on the frontlines to ensure safety for the American people. In spite of savage budget cuts and attacks against them, AFGE members at the Department of Defense continue to support our military’s mission, AFGE border patrol agents secure our borders, and AFGE Transportation Security Officers safeguard our air travel. AFGE fire fighters and police officers also put their lives on the line every single day to ensure save lives and ensure safety and security of all Americans.

AFGE salutes men and women who took the oath of office to serve the American people and protect the United States.

“AFGE members are committed to protecting this country and ensuring that nothing like this ever happens again,” said AFGE President J. David Cox Sr.
