On this day, we somberly remember the events of September 11, 2001, and as a nation, we share the grief of a day that continues to haunt our country. However, the courage exemplified by the American people shines brighter than the darkness experienced that day. Countless first-responders and volunteers risked their lives, with some giving the ultimate sacrifice, for the sake of others.  9/11 represents an American tale of resilience, survival, courage, and love.

“One of the worst days in America’s history saw some of the bravest acts in America’s history… we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice.” -President George W. Bush

Eighteen years later, our nation continues to remember those who were lost in the worst terror attack on United States soil, including seven members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon — six at the World Trade Center and one at the Pentagon. Their names are forever enshrined in the Peace Chapel at The Levere Memorial Temple which hosts memorials containing the names of SAE men killed or missing-in-action from the Civil War up to the present day, including our brothers listed below who were lost on September 11:

Jeffery A. Coale (Maryland-College Park ’92)
Michael B. Finnegan (Richmond ’86)
Wallace C. Hogan (Valdosta State ’82)
Eamon J. McEneaney (Richmond ’86)
James A. O’Grady (UCLA ’92)
Todd J. Ouida (Michigan ’98)
Robert A. Rasmussen (North Dakota State ’82)
