    Take a moment of silence or say a prayer.
    To those who lost their lives this day, you will forever be remembered.
    Thank you to all the hero’s who stepped out and stepped up to make the casualties less.
    God Bless

    I was in Basic Training at Fort Benning. I’ll never forget it as long as I live.
    From there it was Infantry School and then Airborne School all back to back.
    Less than a year later I was in Iraq with the 82nd Airborne as part of the invasion.
    I was wounded by being blown up in an IED on October 17, 2003.

    I was taking a political science class at a college that started at 7am pacific. I walked in and the teacher had just brought a TV in and turned on the news. He said anyone who wants to stay and watch and talk about what’s happening can. Anyone who wants to go home can. I stayed and watched in shock as it unfolded. Unbelievable, seemed unreal at the time.

    Sitting in an English class, the teacher got a phone call and after hanging up she said there was something big happening and turned on the tv and after we figured out what was happening we just sat there watching, jaws dropped, in silence.
