RENO, Nev. — Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney says Sept. 11 is a day to renew a resolve to protect the nation from “evil” attacks and thanked members of the National Guard for their service and sacrifices.
Speaking to 4,000 members at the National Guard Association convention Tuesday in Reno, Romney said the National Guard has “never faltered, never wavered,” whether they are called up to help residents at home recover from natural disasters or to fight an enemy in distant lands.
Romney said the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 people are a stark reminder that the world is a dangerous place. He pledged to preserve defense spending to ensure military personnel proper equipment and training, as well as resources they need when they come home.
