I go to Pa where flight 93 crashed every year, Its a somber place that will make you sad. Everyone should go there. you always hear about NYC but never flight 93. Its been 9 years since it happened and the govt is just starting to make a memorial there. greg you look like a Vet. From one Army vet to all the others "welcome home" and thankyou.

I…for one…will NEVER forget! Seems that are many anti-war enthusiasts that have already forgotten WHY we are fighting! God bless those who are or who have served and, most especially, those that have lost a life or that of a loved one in doing so.

I remember that day like it was yesterday I watched the second plane go into that Tower it was horrific. I was sitting there with my 2 year old son and holding him close and crying. I didn't want to go to work that day, but had to. I felt that day we should have been aloud to stay home with our Families, for nobody knew if anything else was going to happen.
May all those who lost there lives needlessly R.I.P

During the days after 9/11 we saw big planes and helicopters flying over our area in Kingston, NY. There was concern that terrorists would attempt to poison the large reservoirs in our region. There were helicopters with equipment that flooded the ground with bright lights at night. That went on for days. We will never forget 9/11, and we will never forget that activity either.

I GOT INTO A LONG "DISCUSSION"ON FACE BOOK YESTERDAY WITH A FRIENDS FRIEND..THEY SAID WE SHOULD "GET OVER IT" NEEDLESS TO SAY THAT DIDN'T GO OVER TO WELL WITH ME. HE SAID THAT WE DON'T DO THIS FOR ANY OTHER EVENT THAT HAS HAPPENED, THAT WE NEED TO GET ON WITH OUR LIVES. I TOLD HIM THAT THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES THAT DAY AND HOW THE MILITARY IS PROTECTING HIS FREEDOM..HE SAID THAT THEY DIDN'T SACRIFIC THEIR LIVES, BECAUSE TO SACRIFIC MEANS TO DO SOMETHING SELFLESSLY..AND THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING SO IT WASN'T A SACRIFIC AND THAT HIS FREEDOM WASN'T IN JEOPARDY..NEEDLESS TO SAY , THERE WAS A LOT MORE SAID..MORE THAN I GOT TIME TO REPEAT..LETS JUST SAY THAT MY HEART FEELS FOR HIM…BUT THAT'S HIS OPINION AND I'VE GOT MINE

We do remember other dates, but I think this one struck us differently perhaps because it was a cowardly, sneaky act of terrorism, not an act of war. And it was carried out on unsuspecting civilians. Terrorism is a different kind of horror. And the magnitude was hard to wrap your mind around. And, we watched it in real time go from bad to worse as the towers collapsed.

But we do. We remember Pearl Harbor, we remember D-Day, the invasion of Europe, we celebrate July 4th which lead to war, and we remember Vetrans' day, and I am sure I am missing many more. It is a day of change.

Thank you Greg;
9-11 was a horrable thing to happen. I support all the brave people who stepped up and said, 'NO, This is not going to happen again.'
I am proud of all of the veterans that tried to re-enlist. Our skills may be rusty, but they are still better than no skills. We must not let all this mayhem that occured, make us forget our sacrifices for freedom to be American.
I'll hand the soapbox over to the next one to pick-up the torch. If it is different, I fought for your right to reply.

I Ask God's blessing go to you and yours.
It has been an angry week. Some of the trash talk about vetrans I hear is frustrating. I need patience Lord . . . and I want it now!

I had the honor of being part of a Freedom Walk in our town today. It was great to be with the ROTC and hundreds of other people who have not forgotten what happened on this day. I posted a new photo of it in my profile.

My thanks go to those who were the first responders on this tragic day. My heart goes out to the families who lost loved ones. And my prayers go out in hopes that we will never see an event like this again on our soil.
