My thoughts this morning are with those who have holes in their lives, their families, their mental and physical health from their experiences on 9/11/01 in various locations around the country. As is a habit amongst a small group of us from the Navy Staff at the Pentagon, all "alumni" of that attack, we have called or emailed or texted each other early this morning with remembrances of shipmates and co-workers who perished that day. No one hides the tears that flow, including now-admirals. It was a horrific, brutal, violent morning on a warm, sunny day, the air redolent with burning avgas and hazed with dust and debris from the smoking face of the Pentagon and the dark jagged vee cutting deep into the ring of corridors. I recognize this event in our history recedes farther back in our memory each year, but I hope we ... Never forget.
