Duckworth's "Alive Day"
U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth talks on the U.S. House floor Tuesday. Her Blackhawk helicopter was hit on Nov. 12, 2004, making the anniversary what she calls her "alive day." She used the speech to praise the people who helped her.
"I owe it to them to make their sacrifices and their heroic efforts that day worth it," she said.
