I remember it was on a Tuesday because we were in uniform for drill inspection when the towers fell. The second that plane hit the tower, Chief knew it was not an accident.

I never got the chance to join. Asthma. I got shut down so many times. They used to call me all the time because of my ASVAB scores but as soon as they heard necessary inhaler it was over. My brother's an Air Force Officer though.

Before 9/11 the army did jungle readiness training. They don’t anymore though. That sucks I’m sorry they wouldn’t look past that. It’s truly isn’t fair. Good for your bro though. Just your willingness to serve is admirable :)

Thanks. There was no way I could have made the PT runs though. That, and the tear gas training would have literally killed me. I guess I'm called to something else, but I still have no idea what that is.

On another note, I had fun out west. Busted some Prarie dogs and shot long range for the first time. Shot a 50bmg too. Way too much fun.

Yeah that would have been hell with asthma. Well you can’t help that. Don’t feel bad, have no clue what I’m supposed to do either.
Wow sounds like you had a blast then! I think that would knock me out lol

Lol. It almost did. That scope bit me hard above my eye. Surprisingly, it doesn't really kick hard. It just needs to be held down because it jumps up. It knocked his dad off the shooting bench.

Sometimes being a wife and mother is the greatest and hardest job out there.

I just realized you thought I was referring to your husband in the meme. My NCO served in Vietnam and after. He went through a lot. I'm sure your husband is a wise man too but no, I don't think you're that old. Lol

My dad was visiting my brother in Charleston and was out fishing all day on a pier by himself. Of course that was before cellphones. My brother went to pick him up late in the afternoon and was like, well, guess you haven't heard...

I was in the front yard doing some pruning and my neighbor said something like New York was getting bombed. I ran inside and turned on the tv. Horrified at what I saw happening:(

I was in college. I had just dropped my daughter off at daycare and was on my way to class when I heard Howard Stern talking about it. At first I thought it was some stupid joke of his, just in really poor taste, then I went into the building where my class was and everybody was gathered in the common area around the tv instead of being in the their classrooms. It was devastating. At that point I had loved ones in NYC and in the DC area, I spent the rest of the day glued to the tv while also trying to call and check on people.

I hadn't turned on the news that morning and went to work delivering pizzas. I listened to the radio, and there wasn't any music on my usual station, just the DJs talking about SOMETHING bad, and basically assuming the listeners knew what the hell they were talking about. It wasn't until I got home from working an 8-hour shift that I was able to turn on the TV and see it for myself. My parents had been divorced for years, but we all got together with my brother at our friends' house. The husband and my brother were in the Army National Guard at the time, and were wanting to "go make bullet holes and craters". It was shortly after that that my brother decided to go full-service with the Army. He just retired a little while ago with 20 years service.

I was in school, (homeschooled) and Dad called Mom from his work to tell her about it. She immediately stopped our school and turned on the TV and we all 5 watched the news and footage, but to be honest I was so young I didn’t fully understand what was happening at the time. All I knew is that it was terrible.

I was heading into work that day and felt like crap. So, I called in sick and went back home and back to bed. I woke up around 11:00am. I turned on the TV just as they showed a replay of the second plane hitting. I pretty much sat the whole day watching. I stayed up until Bush addressed the nation. The day's after, I had even more pride in our country. We were all in this together to make our country the greatest. I will never forget the pain I feel for the ones who were murdered that day, and the sorrow I feel for the families effected. What makes me mad is the politicians, what I feel, holding our military back. These bastards still need to pay and be eradicated.
