Dana Roth Mikowski: I was in high school, Modern World History class when the 1st plane hit. Two weeks after my 18th birthday I signed my military contract as 31B (Military Police), serving 4 years. One of the best experiences of my life.

Jennifer Kanavy: As long as I have a mind I will never forget that day. It still makes my heart sink. My son was just 8 years old then and now serves this Country in the Army.

Richard Bettis: Iwas training for Kosovo and was on a training mission and when we came back to our tent they had TV’s on and showing the whole thing. I did 18yrs US Army before I was medically discharged.

Sheila Thicksten-Hall: My oldest was four years old and in Pre-K. I remember the school saying that we could come and get our children that day... He now serves in the US Army.

Kevin Christoffersen: On 9/11, I was in 8th grade (14 years old). My family and I were inside the Pentagon when it was hit. That day, while standing in the parking lot of the Pentagon, I decided I would join the military when I was old enough. On April 26th, 2006 (4 years later, at the age of 18.), I joined the Army due to what happen on 9/11.

Vic Martinez: I was active duty on 9/11. I was able to take the fight to the enemy before I retired in 2006. My pleasure to serve the country! Hooah!

Joe Serback: I was in the U.S. Army from 88 to 96 and after 9/11 I re-enlisted on November 7, 2001 and served in Noble Eagle 2002 and Iraqi Freedom 2003 where I was injured and am now a proud Disabled Combat Veteran! Never forget 9/11 and how our country was forever changed that day.
