It's been a rough day today so far. I can't say much about what we are doing, but on this anniversary of 9/11 here in Afghanistan, we are receiving a lot of fireworks (if you know what I mean). Stay safe everybody, and remember everyone that has made the ultimate sacrifice 10 years ago til now and counting.
10 years ago, I remember we were just coming out of parachute jump followed by a training exercise in Fort Bragg, NC. We had just gotten into our barracks to clean our weapons and equipment when we turned on the TV and saw the planes hit the towers. Next thing we know, we were on lockdown and the base shut down it's gates, traffic control points sprang up everywhere. I remember the reporters saying that if the planes had hit later in the day, the death toll could have been above 10,000 from the towers alone.
