Dear FOS11 Members and all Families:

We salute the Family Steering Committee on its heartfelt and substantive contributions to the process by which the 9/11 Commission was created and many of its recommendations addressed.  FOS11 is proud of its Board members, Carie Lemack and Robin Wiener, who worked tirelessly as members of the FSC from its genesis to its sunset.  We would like to assure you -- and all 9/11 family members -- that FOS11 will continue the efforts it began in October of 2001 to fulfill its mission, advocating to work for public policies that improve prevention and response to acts of terrorism.  We look forward to collaborating with the former Commissioners as well as the various branches of government to monitor the complete implementation of the Commission's recommendations and welcome others to work with us as they have in the past.  FOS11 will remain a presence in Washington, working for policies that will address the safety and security of our members -- and all of us.

We look forward to collaborating with the former Commissioners as well as the various branches of government to monitor the complete implementation of the 9/11 Commission's recommendations and welcome others to work with us as they have in the past.
