I still remember everything that happened that day 14 years ago. As bad as today seams as society has lost most of what it was originally founded on. We should always remember that it could be worse, it could be a 9/11 tragedy.

I'm thankful to all that serve to make my life possible. Thanks for your service and I'm sorry to all that have lost people in service, always in my prayers.

Never forget!

What is sad, while we have not forgotten September 11th, September 12th is long long gone. :(

The son of a family friend will turn 16 this year. It makes me incredibly sad knowing that he never knew America before 9/11. So much has changed :(

His generation is now becoming the forum's youngest members.

That was an interesting time capsule to read.

I was in 4th grade at the time... I tried to join the military when I turned 18, but have some health problems that kept me out.

I remember being out with a crew in a large city. While I was setting up everyones daily task, we all suddenly realized the dead silence, no one on the street no planes or any thing else in the air. We were in the approach to LAX! It took a radio call to our base to find out what had happened, we were all stunned.

I don't know the origins of this compilation or how old it is, but it is very well done.
It definitely captures some of the emotions of that day.

Never forget.

I just saw this thread and like all of us I can’t forget the shock, disbelief the sick empty feeling and helpless feeling followed by anger. My wife worked for an Army contractor and regularly had meetings at the Pentagon. She was supposed to have one later that afternoon and had just driven by the Pentagon 20 minutes earlier. She was able to call me and let me know she was safe. She knew a couple of people that were injured and one that was killed. I felt so helpless and wanted to do something so I grabbed some old paint and markers and started painting a message on the rear window of my Areostar. Some neighbors I hadn’t never met before started watching and gave me some more paint. I’ll never forget the horrors of that day but I also will never forget how it brought us together.

20 years? It seems impossible. In a way it seems that time has stood still.

Forums like this were pretty much the extent of social media in 2001.
