On this fateful date, the Marfa Border Patrol Sector was conducting a ground breaking ceremony for the new Alpine station facility you see standing in the background. The ceremony was halted when the report was received and all personnel were put on full alert as the country responded to the evil and cowardly attack.

This steel artifact was extracted from the rubble of the World Trade Center and donated to the Alpine station by the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey.

How tragically ironic that a building dedicated to the safety and security of the United States should begin construction at the exact moment that other buildings some 2,000 miles away would be destroyed by those enemies of this country who would see us all perish.

We remember the innocent victims of the World Trade Center, the heroes of United Flight 93, and the brave men and women who died at the Pentagon. We also remember all the other heroes, police, fire and emergency medical personnel, who selflessly responded and died during the rescue efforts. We honor their sacrifice and that of their family and loved ones.

We, the men and women of the United States Border Patrol, stand ever vigilant in defiance of all enemies of the United States of America and we vow to never forget.

"Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." - George Santyana
