WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on the anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City:

“Fifteen years ago today, 168 Americans were killed in an act of domestic terrorism. The bombing of Oklahoma City's Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building shocked our nation; but it also brought us together in grief, in compassion, and, finally, in recovery. On today's anniversary, we honor the memories of the dead, many of whom died in service to our country, some of whom were taken from their families while still children, and all of whom left grieving loved ones behind. We honor the first responders and the ordinary Americans who were so quick to serve in tragedy's wake. And we honor all those who continue to serve our nation every day.”
