I was at work clearing the parking lot thinking what I was going to be doing the following week for my birthday, and my wife was getting ready to go to Laughlin for her 21st birthday.

I just started my sophomore year in college and was woken up by my wife (fiance at the time) and my mom who were watching the news at the time. They got me and just as I got there I saw the second plane hit the other tower. 9/11/01 was also my moms 40th birthday. Needless to say it wasnt a great birthday. Also my mother in law was supposed to be in the towers for a meeting (worked for Morgan Stanley), but they had moved it.David

8 years ago... I would have been 10. I was sitting at home, getting ready for school (I was in 5th grade at the time, I think). My mom got a call from one of her friends telling her the news, and I remember her freaking out, running to the T.V. and switching to the news channel. I watched the first building burn as the second one got hit. Being the naive little 10-year-old I was, I didn't understand just how serious the whole situation was. As the next few days came and passed, I started to realize how terrible it was.Current truck: 1996 Ford 250, 7.3 Powerstroke diesel.

I was in a US Navy Boeing 737-300 short on fuel flying into Batman station Turkey from Stutt-Gart Germany, at about 200 miles out all radios were suddenly and unexpectedly jammed and we quickly got 4 armed jet A/C escorts with two in Hi-Cap painting fire control radars on us. We were instructed to verify all crewmembers with assigned codes and redirected to a dirt runway in the mountains east of Batman, we were shadowed to the ground by our fighter escort and once on the ground quickly surrounded by APC's and mobile rocket launchers. Everybody on the plane was detained untill they were cleared by FBI agents.
That was the scaryiest landing I made in 22 years active duty, and I had 1100 carrier landings and 5 landings in South Korea during invasion alerts.
Batman was the first leg of my trip home from a 9 month deployment in the Southern no fly zone, I immediately deployed from Batman to Akritiri, Crete for 5 moths, Then deployed to Afghanistan for 3 months, and finally Iraq where I stayed until December of 2003.

I was driving to a meeting in North Carolina and had stoppd overnight in Martinsville Va. Since I did not need to be anywhere in a hurry that day I took my time checking out of the hotel I was in . As I was eating breakfast and watching the Today Show they started covering the first plane flying into the tower. I remember this really old' really country old man say "That damn Osama Bin Laden". My first thought was I couldn't believe that man said that in front of a number of people not even knowing what had happened yet. As everything was just happening at that point. Turns out the man was right and now how easy it is to make judgements like that man did that day. The world surely changed forever.

I was a Deputy Sheriff, doing court duty with prisoners I had transported. We didn't even know until I got back to the Jail with the prisoners. I was told to drop my prisoners in the jail and get my cruiser out of the building, that we (US) had been attacked and the Sheriff had put us on emergency alert status. We watched in stunned disbelief the rest of the day on the jail TV's. RIP to all who died and prayers out to all families who lost a loved one.

I was in the 3rd grade and I remember being mad because they wouldnt let us go outside. They didnt tell us why because I guess they thought we were to young so they left it up to our parents to do the dirty work.

8 years ago? I was sitting on my couch watching CNN after the first tower was hit wondering how the hell that could happen.
I was in the Marines at the time and I was on my last day of leave. My wife had just gotten out of the shower when I called up to her..Kelly shomething is wrong...and then the second plan hit.
I called up to her and said, "Kelly, start packing my gear I gotta get back to base." Sure enough I get a phone call about 5 minutes later and everyone is to report to base ASAP we are going to lock down.
Seven days later...I shipped out to Afghanistan.
Two days prior to shipping out, I found out we were pregnant.
A time that stood still for me and one that I will never forget...nor should any of us. Our fallen country men should never be forgotten. I was proud to put my life up for their vengeance. Let me re-phrase that. Pride had nothing to do with it...it was my obligation.......

I was in the 6th grade and in the shower when I heard the news on the radio. I just got back from a summer trip to New York a week before and had visited both towers. Very surreal for a 12 year old.Stock.....For Now
