Delivered at Mt Mitchill, Atlantic Highlands, September 11, 2020

Congressman Chris Smith

Everyone remembers where they were and what they were doing when terrorists hijacked four airliners in order to commit the worst act of terrorism in American history.

   Nearly 700 New Jerseyans—147 from Monmouth County alone—lost their lives that day.
