In my car, sitting at the light on Alemda at OST. Heard it on the radio, made it to work at the VA Hospital just as they were shutting the gates. Was on building lock down for most of the day as the Houston VA is the largest in the nation and considered a possible terrorist attach point. Watched the second tower strike in the break room with my fellow workers.....

It was my 24th birthday, I was walking into my office to work and my mom called in a panic asking me to turn on the radio or a tv. It wasnt until HOURS later that she remembered my birthday. It was understandable, for a while there, I even forgot.

Ironically, my mother and brother-in-law share the same birthday!

I was cleaning horse stalls and keeping my grandson. one of the other ladies who kept her horse there also came by and told me someone had attacked the twin towers. Those were the fastest cleaned stalls. Put my grandson in the car and headed home praying he would take a nap so I could watch TV. I then become a TV junky watching to see how many survived. I don't think I'll ever forget it and I believe that every 11-11-01 a 30 minute reminder should be broadcast so everyone will remember that day and how it changed our country....

I was in NY City at the time as a Medic for FDNY. Lost a great bunch of friends and colleagues on that day. Spent 96 days on the pile. Soon after was placed back on active duty in the US Army and then it was off to the big sandbox (Iraq) which then turned into the other sandbox (Afghanistan) and then it all became a blur. 3 years later it was time to retire.
