Like so many Americans, I will never forget the morning of September 11, 2001. I was heading to the airport when I first heard the news that a plane crashed into the World Trade Center. I immediately returned home to see the harrowing scenes of our fellow citizens covered with debris trying to escape what looked like a war zone.
August 26th, 2021 is a day Americans must never forget. It’s the day 13 Marines, Soldiers, and Navy Corpsmen, would make the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan. They gave their lives so others may live, the most noble form of selflessness human beings will ever know.
