Let us never forget!! This day, 19 years ago, changed everyone’s life! Many of you on this page joined the military because of today.
19 years ago, I was in basic training, in Fort Benning, GA training to become an Infantryman. It was still a peacetime army, and I thought I’d join to get college money, and finally fulfill a lifelong dream of being in the army. I’ll never forget that day. Our Drill Sergeants came running into the training bay with a TV, and told us to get up there now! Just as he turned it on, we saw the second plane hit the tower. He immediately looked at us sitting there in shock, and said your training just got real. We’re going to war! He was right! This day, 19 years ago, changed my life forever! As it did to most of you. In the words of the great Allen Jackson, “where were you when the world stopped turning, that September day?”
