9/11, a day of remembrance for all those that were lost on that dreadful day 17 years ago...
It's also a day to remember those brave men and women in the military and first responders that ran into the fire to protect and save all that this fine country stands for.
It is in this spirit that the Bismarck Chamber of Commerce, along with iHeartMedia, come together at the Raymond J. Bohn Armory for "Brats with the Brave"
This event allowed everyone in the community to come out, have lunch with the fine men and women of the North Dakota National Guard, and to say 'Thank You' to all those that have, and continue to serve.
This year, Governor Burgum came and said a few words of Thanks of his own, as well as reminding us about the importance of taking care of our service men and women not just while they serve, but after they come home.
Thank you to everyone that came out to this year's event, and I can't thank enough all the members of the Military and First Responders that routinely spend their days ensuring the safety and security of the rest of us!
