September 11, 2001

Next year marks the tenth anniversary.  It's been an amazing period of time.  I was in training for a flying tour.  My unit deployed less than a year after the event.  It was an incredible time to be in uniform defending our nation.  I never felt like I could do enough, but took comfort in General Lee's advice:

“Duty is the sublimest word in our language. Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more. You should never wish to do less.” 

We lost too many citizens that day, and too many warriors since then.  I wish you all fair winds and following seas on your journey.
