My apologies for not posting this earlier, real life commemorations were going on.

Today, I want us to take a moment and remember those who lost their lives during the events of 9/11/01.  

What were you doing that?

I was 10. I can remember calling my dad to ask what it meant, and not being able to talk to him, because he was involved with what was going on at his base.  I was at school and began thinking the Russians were coming.  Funny now, but not funny then.  I joined the military years later.

I was a 2nd LT and the senior MP on duty at the base where the Conus Crisis Reaction Force was located.  I caused traffic to be backed up at the gates, because I shut them down.  

I remember the Russians are coming statement....rofl.

I remember being worried about family that worked in the Towers and at the Pentagon.  My family was living across from the Pentagon at the time. I went through grief, anger, grief, disgust, anger, and so on.  That day changed America. Sometimes I think for the worst.
