Veterans and 9/11 Families React to Bin Laden’s Death

The Takeaway

Veterans and families of victims of the 9/11 attacks are gathering at Ground Zero and elsewhere this morning, to celebrate and reflect on the news that Osama Bin Laden is dead. We speak with Dennis McKeon, a parishioner of St. Clare’s Roman Catholic Church in Staten Island, which lost 29 members of its congregation in the 9/11 attacks. McKeon started the organization Where to Turn, which helps those affected by the attack. We also talk with Russell Galeti, first lieutenant in the Ohio National Guard.
