No one can imagine the pain of loss and watching this day unfold on a small television set as they showed planes going into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. I remember this day like it was yesterday because I was still an Army Sergeant, working four hours from the location in New York City and about 45 minutes from the Pentagon location at NSA. I watched the news broadcast on television and thought to myself, "Is this really happening?" as I saw female soldiers with children being released to get to their respective daycare.
Along with myself and others, we stayed to continue our mission and duties and wondered would a plane be reaching for us next. However, as I continued watching, I then realized that it skipped our location and a plane went into the Pentagon. The lives of so many changed on that day and will always be a wound unhealed no matter how much money and resources are provided to the injured and those who have lost someone.
