Eighteen years ago today on April 19, 1995, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was bombed, killing 168 public servants. HUD lost 35 of its own on that terrible day – amazing and vital lives cut short by an act of terrorism.
Fifty HUD employees survived, along with employees from other federal agencies. Their commitment to work together to improve their community is as strong as ever and the strength they demonstrate stand as a testament to our nation’s resilient character.
On this day of commemoration, we should all pause to honor those that lost their lives, and offer a special prayer for their families. We will never forget their contributions to HUD and to our great nation.
