This is a compilation of the April 9, 2014 hearing on "Boston Marathon Bombings, One Year On" held before the House Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Michael McCaul: "This is a powerful and emotional day for the witnesses, for me, and this Committee. It's a time to remember the Anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombings, and it's a time to remember the victims. I, personally, remember walking down Boylston Street with Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis, who is with us here today. I remember him pointing out to me the trash cans where the bombs went off, injuring 260 innocent people and killing three including a little 8 year old boy, in cold blood. In the middle of chaos, we also witnesses exceptional bravery. If not for the heroic acts of the first responders and Boston citizens who ran towards danger instead of away, many more could have died. I remember after the attack, the marathoners tying their shoes together in the hundreds in a memorial out of respect and dedication. I remember the Watertown Police Chief, who is before us today. I remember him taking Congressman Keating and me on a tour of their once-quiet neighborhood and seeing the aftermath of the gunfight to take down two of the biggest terrorists since 9/11." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael McCaul, Edward F. Davis, III, Edward P. Deveau, Jeffrey J. Pugliese, and Herman "Dutch" B. Leonard.
