Tough call. I am 100% "Never forget" and include in that, the party that currently supports those that were responsible.

I cannot forget that they put these people in office in the very country they tried to destroy. Can you remember WWII without Hitler's responsibility? Can you remember Pearl Harbor without the Japanese responsible?

They are inseparable. The difference being, we didn't put nazi's in public office.

The same party that believes Derek Chauvin represents ALL police wants us to not feel the same about muslims.

A religion that prefers...no, "insists" I be dead, should NEVER be in a position of power in this country.

Every one has their story. Each one of us remembers when we heard, when we saw, and what we felt. I remember having a very hard time explaining to my son what happened, and why I was leaving. We deployed a week after that, we stayed at sea for longer than any deployment since WWII. That 1st night I spent 20 hrs straight on the flight deck. barely had time to piss. Everyday we launched combat missions and everyday we were exhausted. We never went to port and we didn't want to. All we wanted to do was rain hell on those people everyday and everynight. I saw the flag that the firefighters found and raised at ground zero flying above our ship. It made me proud! They brought it to us so it could fly over the Roosevelt as we sought retribution for our fallen.

We flew this flag every time we were at combat ops.

I still avoid going down there when i'm in the city... still too many feelings, and the f'ing tourists treat it like Disney world instead of where 3,000 were murdered.

I was a Drill Sergeant at the time.

I made it my mission to rid my Army of every sniveler that was scared to go to war.

You should have rid the females that have no business in combat.

Agree. I walk through there like it is a cemetery, not a park.

Marian was my friend. There were others. I just happened upon this piece from September 23, 2001.

I don't hold it against you in the least...as long as you don't hold it against me either.

The fact that they have a voice in this country is infuriating. They should feel blessed we didn't round them all up and ship them off somewhere.

To me, they are a malignant tumor on the world that should be removed. Everywhere there is death and destruction, they are right in the middle. Obviously they are soooo stupid that they buy off on the evil ideology of Izzslam, and we all know where that leads. It is a death/murder cult that has no place on our planet. Until they are treated as the cancer they are, then we can expect more of the same. And don't get me wrong, how I believe is not religious based. I don't buy any form of religion whatsoever. I just know malignant cancer when I see it.

Remembering some other friends I lost on 9/11. Rest In Peace Sandy, Jerry, Dave, and Marian, whose service my wife and I attended. May you look down on your loved ones with joy in your hearts and the Lord bring them comfort on this day of remembrance. We miss you.

Marian was one of the hardest workers I ever met but always smiling and laughing. She was so proud of her daughter. Sandy was a flower child who always had classic rock playing at her desk. Dave was a diehard Broncos fan and a talented jazz musician. Jerry always went out of his way to help with difficult tasks. I also worked alongside a survivor who suffered horrible burns and was met by President Bush in the hospital, LTC Brian Birdwell, who’s now a Texas state senator. Dedicated hard working types you’d want to know. Salt of the earth every one of them.
