343 Fratres Vigiles

What were you doing 7 years ago ....
I had a rough summer, I had been
laid offand had taken a summer job
at the fire DepartmentOne of our RV's
(resident volunteers) and I were doing
grunt work and making calls. I came to
work early and was naping in the Lounge
and I heard The RV tell me we had been
attacked. Turning on the TV I watched
both towers fall and knew it would not be
long befor my son would off to war. I know
almost 3000 people died inthe attack....but
its the 343 souls that rushed into the
towers, not out that are my heroes.


Rest in Peace Brothers

May they Rest in Peace.

We were getting a satellite dish installed. It would have been an otherwise unmemorable day.

By 1300 I had been activated and was in a convoy going to DC. At 0937 one of my friends had died there, but I had no idea until weeks later.

I was asleep when a friend called and said to turn on the news. :(
Something I'll never forget.

I had taken the day off from that place where we used to work to interview for a different job. The evil one, who shall remain nameless, called and interrupted me ironing a shirt and said I really needed to turn on the TV. Like you, I sat there in disbelief and watched both towers fall.
