    Default Where Were You Comparison: 9/11/2001 & When Osama Bin Laden Killed?

    Where were you on 9/11/2001 and when you found out when Osama Bin Laden was killed?

    I was driving to work in Fort Worth, Texas on the morning of 9/11/2001 when I heard of the terrorist attacks. I was in my bedroom in Arlington, Texas getting ready for bed when I was told that Osama Bin Laden was dead and I got up to watch the news and see what was going on.

    There has been a lot of changes for me in the past 9 1/2 years. I'm now in my late 30's instead of my late 20's. I'm married now with 2 kids and one on the way. I've built this network of websites (in which GMTC is the biggest site) and have advanced my career as well. I've probably gotten a bit cynical about life in some aspects but I've been trying to combat that type of thinking lately.

    On 9/11 I was listening to the radio while sweeping in the warehouse at the job I had then.

    Yesterday I was just about to fall asleep when I heard the news.

    Boy has time changed. Then I had just gotten married a two weeks earlier and had a child due in a month. Since then I have had a couple other jobs including being a stay at home dad, purchased a house, and had five more children.

    On 9/1/2001 I was a newly promoted U.S. Navy Warrant Officer (CWO2) Crew Chief deployed to Batman forward airbase Turkey transporting troops between Germany and Turkey for operation "No Fly". The night of the attack I was enroute from Germany, part of the way back to Turkey we were ordered to go EMCON (radio silence) and were immediately placed under the escort of U.S. Air Force F-15 fighters that turned their fire control radars on us for the rest of the trip. We werent told what happened in the U.S. until we were on the ground.

    The world is completely different for me now, I've been retired from the Navy for over 5 years and my main priority is no longer deploying to foreign countries to enforce American diplomacy.
    Today I didnt find out Bin Laden had been apprehended until I turned on the news at 0510 to get ready for work. I was kind of surprised to hear he had been caught, then again anyone thats seen B-52 bombing missions conducted in the Afghanistan mountains would be surprised there were any people left alive there.
    Definately something thats long overdue but unfortunately it isnt the end of the road, only another turn in the road.
    Good luck to all those still deployed in that hell the rest of the world calls the middle east, keep your head down and come home fast and safe.
