Lest We Forget - September 11, 2001

The United States of America was invaded in a series of coordinated suicide terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.   

On that day, Guidry News Service talked to several people who were near the World Trade Center in New York City or in Washington, D.C. -- where the attacks took place.  Those interviews have been updated throughout the years.  Our coverage includes two very powerful PowerPoint presentations of the attacks.
