I was at auction in Garnet KS. My son had been in marine corps boot camp for about 3 weeks. I figured he would get the adventure he was looking for.



Thanks from me go out to so many who have sacrificed so much to protect our country.

sangin,on the way out something felt weird and i realized it was dead silent quiet and realized no planes at all and the last one i heard that day was a military plane which i later assumed was probably one that was scrambled.

Was in the 5th grade I remember walking into the classroom and the teacher having the tv on. Remember going home That night and mom and dad being glued To the tv, and having little patience with my brothers and I. Hard for a kid at that age to understand a terrorist attack.

My sincere thank you to all those who serve our country in the military and as first responders, from my family to yours thank you

I was building a chimney for a customer about twenty miles from the Lehigh Valley International Airport. I noticed the weird silence but didn't put it together until my wife called and told me what had happened. It was unusually quiet because the passenger flights had been grounded.

We were both worried that the attacks were the prelude to an invasion. I retrieved a gun from my truck, turned on the customer's radio so I could monitor the situation and continued working.

I figured if I saw enemy paratroopers I'd try to take out one or two before they got me.


Eh...wot?

Also pray for those still losing their lives due to illness from being on the pile. They are adding another 27 FF names to the wall that passed this year.

Walked into a doctor's office and saw a plane fly into the first tower on a TV on the office waiting room wall (it was a re-play). As I checked in, all eyes of the folks were on that TV, and I thought it was a movie playing or something. Then I noticed doc was sitting in the waiting room staring at the TV also! So were all the nurses and staff. All of them absolutely silent.

I just bowed my head.

I humbly thank those men and women who risk all unselfishly.

Thanks for the post danny.

Blessings,
Mark

Praying for all those that lost someone that day, and for all those that sacrificed their blood, sweat, and tears defending this great country.

Was having breakfast with a colleague at a golf course with CNN on the TV when the 2nd plane hit, up until that point it was thought to be an accident. I said, "have to get back to work that's about to impact on my workload." Was acting detachment commander with a rural Ontario police service at the time. Wasn't just the U.S. that went on high alert.

Was finishing a garage floor in a neighboring town when I seen airplanes from KCI doing U-turns. Didn't know what was going on until a concrete truck driver told us at the next job. After dumping out that footing we all headed home to be with family and try catching up on what was happening.

I was on a fire near Spanish Fork, Utah.


I have nothing clever to put here.

I was home watching the News, seen the second airplane hit. The first thing I noticed was all the paper that got blown out of the building. Odd the things you remember.

I was at work, heard about a plane hitting a building in New York on the radio, so I turned on the TV in the office. Saw the second plane, hit, then was called out on an ambulance run. Learned about the Pentagon as we were loading the patient.

I was in high school. Watching that happen sealed my fate with joining the army.

I was in Wichita, doing my six month certification test for Ks Gas. The inspector, who I knew well, came out and got me. Said there is something weird going on, that a plane hit one of the towers. We went in and watched the second one hit, and realized we were being attacked. Just like yesterday! On the way home that afternoon, some of the gas stations were raising their prices, and I thought what arses, taking advantage of the situation!
