Where I Was On 9/11
Earlier that year I graduated from High School and enlisted in the USAF to be a Security Forces troop. I had completed BMT (Basic Military Training) only few weeks before and was at the time working my way through the Security Forces Training Academy. On 9/11 I was on the rifle range at Lackland AFB, Texas preparing to complete the rifle qualification course. As a trainee I had no idea what was happening when the Training Cadre quickly pulled all of us off the firing line and collected our weapons and loaded us on deuce and half trucks. They then rushed us into a classroom and posted guards at all the doors only then did they tell us what was happening. I remember thinking to myself "This is what I'm here for."
