We Reflect and Grow Stronger

After the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the 11th of September was made into a national day of mourning and remembrance for the victims and heroes of that day. September 11 has since been designated Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance. On this day, we reflect on the past and honor these individuals and those who continue to serve, but we also recognize America’s resilience and return to strength and unity.

Benefits.gov has been an active, inter-agency partnership across the U.S. Government since 2002, helping U.S. citizens receive the benefit information and resources they need. We continue to provide services both for our civilian heroes, like those who responded to and were affected by the tragedy on September 11, 2001, and our servicemen and women who are still fighting for these freedoms today. Some examples of these services are:

Lastly, there are many ways to get involved with service opportunities this upcoming September 11. To find an event near you or to register an event of your own, visit the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) for more information. These events are a way to give back to the community in which you live and allow communities to reflect together through service.
