Re: Lest we forget

I will never forget. Remember exactly where I was. Remember how odd it was to see nothing flying. Remember I was near Ellington AFB the next year on the first year anniversary only to hear the entire squadron of f-16's stationed there, take off suddenly..it was eerie..

I was a kid growing up in New York when the towers were being built...

My aunt's sister lost her Husband (firefighter) that day...

will never forget...

Re: Lest we forget

Seeing the first airliner here to take to the skies after the attacks seemed...eerie.

Re: Lest we forget

This day finds us again in a free and prosperous country thanks to the sacrifice of those who make it their work to keep us safe. Thanks to you all, and a prayer and a tear for those who were taken from us so brazenly 17 years ago.

It was definitely the "Pearl Harbor" of our times. It one of those things that you can remember exactly what you were doing the moment it happened.

Re: Lest we forget

Let us not forget the thousands who are living with cancers and various diseases today as a direct result of the air contamination caused that day.

Re: Lest we forget

I'll never forgot where I was when this happen. I was in Alaska, at my 1st base, getting ready for work. My supervisor called me and told me to get in now. I got to work and saw what was going on in the news and we saw the 2nd plane hit the building. We had our jets on alert. We had people deploy with our A-10's to A-stan and I deployed a year later with our F-16's on alert, we practice scrambles twice a day.....I and everyone else hoped it didn't come to that.

Re: Lest we forget

Definitely a day of remembrance. Glad to see our work still honors this day with a ceremony. I know as long as I work here I'll be pushing for it to continue. 17 years later...
Thank you to all branches of the military, and all first responders. They truly did run past those who were fleeing to save others. True heros

Re: Lest we forget

We find ourselves here another year on. Those memories of that day still feel as fresh as 18 years ago. To those that serve, including the first responders and those responders who have since paid the price for doing the job they were trained for, my eternal thanks.

Re: Lest we forget

The World changed that day and it was a loss of innocence for the people of the United States. It may have been 18 years ago, but for me, it was like yesterday. I'll never forget. It was the attack on Pearl Harbor moment of my lifetime.
