FORT MEADE, Md. –
Twenty years ago today, our nation suffered an attack unlike anything since Pearl Harbor. We pause today to reflect on this somber event, in remembrance of those we have lost and in solidarity with those affected in a multitude of ways. We have been changed, all of us, both as a nation and as members of the intelligence community.
For nearly seven decades, NSA has placed tremendous focus on efforts in support of the defense of our nation and our role as a combat support agency to the US military. This includes intelligence support to countering terrorism, especially since the tragedy on September 1, 2001.
As we commemorate, mourn, or spend time in reflection, NSA and the people that make up our workforce remain, as always, steadfast in the dedication to protect and defend United States warfighters, our citizens, and our constitution.
