I was moose hunting over in Jackson hole. I never heard about it till I went into Jackson on the 20th to do some shopping.
When I checked out at the grocery store the cashier asked if I wanted to donate money to the folks in NY city. I said no way! Then as I was walking out of the door I saw something at the news paper stand that mentioned the attack

I was at the local health club pumping iron. They have a number of TVs in there when they showed live the first tower get hit. The guy who was spotting me said, "Look at that! Some idiot pilot ran into the WTC!" He thought it was an accident; pilot error.

I told him I didn't think it was accidental with all the middle east people they've been letting into the country. I said I thought it was intentional terrorism. My opinion was confirmed when the second tower got hit.

I even remember when JFK got shot in Dallas. My buddy and I were shooting carp with bow and arrow in the Mississippi river at a local park.

I was up before dawn that day and in the deer woods clearing shooting lanes.

I remember thinking how blue, clear,and cloudless the sky was that morning.

Left the woods at 11:00AM to go vote in the NYS. Republican Primary

at the Oswego County courthouse in Pulaski, N.Y.

Arriving there, I found a sign on the door announcing that the

primary had been cancelled.

I asked a poll worker what was going on and she said

That NYS Governor George Pataki had cancelled the Primary.

"Why would he do that", I asked.

"You haven't heard" ? "You really don't know" ? She asked.

There's been a Terrorist attack.....The World Trade Center Twin Towers are Gone !!

Was patrolling track at M56 on the Island Falls Subdivision when it came on the am radio.
Headed back in to the bunkhouse to clear the train and watched it on the TV.

So many interesting life memories of this day.....isnt it still so clear in our minds.

The image that bucksnbears posted above makes me so angry I cant even put it in a quote with this respectful video....it is something I find stunning every time I think of the unimaginable concept of someone like her being allowed to hold ANY kind of position in this country .....Ive often wondered what the families of today's anniversary and all veterans think of that....

This Bud commercial I have always loved....

Sitting in a grove 635 picker at Troy Energy (peaker plant) in Ohio. Watched the skies clear of contrails, couldn't wait to get home to see the news and find out what was going on!

Just started a new job that week, heard it on the radio when the first plane hit, and knew my brother was working for HUD in one of the World Trade Centers.
It was almost 11 PM that day before my family found out he had been delayed by fifteen minutes on the subway, and never entered the first World Trade Center that day.

Words cannot express my feelings for the people who committed these acts of terrorism!

i was laying on the floor assembling a Magnetic Encoding Machine we designed when the boss called the guys to his office and we watched the second plane hit, then took an hour break to get it back together...after our shock.
Dad was 80 then and a 3 war Vet and called his brother Jack (81 then) who was also a 3 war Vet and said "Jack, we may have to dust off our uniforms."

I was at work when a girl sitting at a machine with a radio told me about the first plane. It went on from there till somebody told me about the plane in shanksville. My place is close enough that it shook some knik knaks off the shelves. I thought the attacks might keep coming so i went and took my 10 year old daughter out of school then went and got my wife from work. One of my friends has a razor wired place in the boonies that would have been my next step after getting anti biotics and more ammo. Will never forget.

I was on the roof of a house in Long Valley, NJ doing a squirrel job. Lady inside the house starts screaming, I thought a squirrel came out somewhere in the house. Then she runs out to tell me a plane just hit the tower where her husband was working. She thought it hit his floor but he was several floors below and survived. My wife's cousin was not so lucky, he was trapped above the flames and called his wife and family to tell them goodbye. My oldest daughter was teaching school (2nd grade) and some of her students lost parents (none of them lost both parents).

Pa,
will never forget on the way to work that day I noticed how blue and cloud free the sky was just looked different. Got to work and headed towards Gettysburg that day that where I was working that day. Heard the radio station say a plane hit the world trade center thought to myself how did that happen. A few miles down the road they said a second plane hit the world trade center a that moment I knew we where under attack. didn't get a whole lot done that day.I will never forget how quiet it was for days with no planes in the sky

I was in 5th grade. I recall our class going to the library and seeing it unfold on a tv on one of those rolling carts. I actually remember telling a classmate that it was probably over in another country (I had been seeing such things on Meet The Press on Sunday's before football). I distinctly remember our teacher (fresh out of college) crying and trying to explain things to us. Most kid's parents picked them up from school early.

The things I remember most is all of the patriotism that was shown in the time following. That made a big impression on me. It would be nice to have some of that unity back today.
