ND delegation hosts soldiers on 9/11 anniversary

BISMARCK — North Dakota's congressional delegation is hosting a reception for some North Dakota National Guard soldiers on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

About 150 soldiers with the 188th Air Defense Artillery Regiment have been serving in the Washington, D.C., area since spring, helping with homeland security.

Sens. John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp and Rep. Kevin Cramer say it's fitting to express appreciation for the military on the anniversary of the terrorist attacks. They say North Dakota guardsmen, reservists and regular military soldiers have sacrificed much to help protect the nation.
