As the 12th anniversary of 9-11 is upon us, I'm asking fellow jeepers to hoist the American Flag on their Jeep to honor those that were killed on that day. They were everyday workers like you and me that showed up for their job and never came home. They were first responders that showed up to rescue those trapped in the towers, pentagon and on planes that were hijacked. They were ALL HEROES that day and many more to follow in the years of fighting overseas. In honor of everyday working people and the US Military men and women, I ask that we hoist the symbol of heroism and to never forget the sacrifice of our fellow Americans.
Hard to believe so many years have passed since this event took place. I always remember this and my flag flies.
Every year I watch the shows on tv remembering that day ..I graduated nursing school that year and on 9-11-2008 i took my MICN exam, making me a participant in first responder calls and
every year those images make me cry for the lives lost. It is so poignant for me more so now because I'm now part of the first responders and friends with many more.
It's an honor to have so many men and women fight for this country on our behalf, so very glad to be an American.
I will be flying my flag tomorrow, and I want to thank everyone serving this country, be it, military, police, fire, or something else. I will also be flying my flag tomorrow for everyone who meets a alarm clock everyday and does his job, day after day, no questions asked. That's not easy, and I have a lot of respect, for people that do. Mark.
Our church sent two 10 man volunteer crews to work the WTC site. They would call us and let us know what was going on. It was very surreal to hear about the destruction first hand from your friends. I will always remember that day.
Drove around town today. My own private tribute to them. Music blasting, leg out the side looking at the scenery. Don't think I've ever appreciated the sacrifice all have made throughout history so I could that. Humbled.
Because of what happened 12 years ago today, I went to Kuwait and eventually to Iraq and then retired. My oldest son went to Iraq and Afghanistan and is now retired because of hitting an ied on his second tour. This day 12 years ago changed the lives of my whole family. God Bless America and Ryan I am proud of your service. I'm glad you came home.
