Patriot Day, 2007

Patriot Day, occurring on September 11th of each year, is a day designated to the memory of those who lost their lives in the attacks on September 11, 2001. Congress approved a joint resolution (S.J.RES.29 & H.J.RES.71) by a vote of 407-0 on October 25, 2001 to designate September 11 as a day of remembrance. President Bush signed the resolution into law on December 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89).
