14 Years Ago… The United States of America was attacked…

From The Vault… Originally Posted September 11th, 2011…

I was a Senior at Valley View High School. A few weeks prior, I had made a choice to join the United States Marine Corps after I graduated. I wasn’t a a smart guy. Well, maybe I was, but I was just lazy. But I knew I wanted to either be a Marine or a FireFighter. My Marine Corps Recruiter (then, Staff Sergeant Harges) gave me the great news that I could do both since they had a spot open for AirCraft Rescue FireFighting.

No official papers were signed yet, I was just 17, so my Mom had to sign all that stuff for me.

And then it happened…

I remember getting ready for school. My Mom always had Fox 11 News on in the morning. I didn’t really understand what was happening. I went to school, and pretty much every single class was “cancelled” that day as we all stayed glued to the classroom televisions watching this horrible event unfold.

That day I knew I wanted to become a United States Marine.

My Mom was worried, she cried, she didn’t want me to do it. I mean, what Mom would at a time like this when you knew that your Son or Daughter, Husband or Wife, was about to go to War.

She signed the papers…

Today’s WOD isn’t about who has the fastest time on the WhiteBoard. Today’s WOD is about HONORING all those who gave their lives on that horrible day that WE will never forget…
