This is a compilation of the April 30, 2014 hearing on "Lessons Learned from the Boston Marathon Bombing" held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. From the opening statement of Thomas R. Carper: "I would like to call this hearing to order. Thank you all for coming today. It has been just over one year since the cowardly attack on the Boston Marathon. Today's hearing is an opportunity to review what lessons have been learned from the actions and events leading up to the attack, in order to prevent, to the greatest extent possible, a similar incident from happening again. We do this, in part, to honor the memory of the four people killed in April 2013, as well as the sacrifices that have been made by the nearly 300 people injured in the attacks. In particular, we mourn for the friends and family of those killed on April 15, 2013 - Krystle Marie Campbell, Martin William Richard, and Lu Lingzi - and for MIT Police Officer, Sean Collier, who was shot by the suspects three days later. This is our Committee's second hearing on the Boston Marathon bombing. It is part of our ongoing oversight efforts to understand what went right that fateful day, and what we can do better." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Thomas R. Carper, Charles McCullough III, John Roth, Michael E. Horowitz, and David B. Buckley.
