    Tomorrow is 9/11. I spent three weeks in NYC. I was fortunate to avoid the most difficult portion of 9/11. I ask that we pray for those who served there. I can still vividly recall the individuals outside of the Army National Guard armory asking about their loved ones. I can still see the towers in ruins. I can hear the words of the fire crews we picked up who could not sleep without getting completely drunk just to be able to sleep. It was some of the hardest military duty I have ever dealt with, but also the most rewarding. I, as well as those with me, were able to give hope to those who had such little hope. Seeing the flyers of those lost was difficult, but encouraging those looking for their loved ones was a blessing. While I believe most have forgotten, I can never, ever, forget. It has made an indelible mark on my life and on on my family, who dealt with my absence for those following weeks.
