It seems like yesterday.

So many heroes.

So much sacrifice.

Never forget.

I was in 7th grade when this happened and I remember watching it on the news while getting ready for school. Never forget.

I went to elementary school with Doug Oelschlager. I moved away, and we lost contact. Many years ago, I went to look him and found that he was lost during the 9/11 attack. He was one of those Heros that ran into a burning building when others were running out!

Several years ago, I was able to see his name at the WTC Memororial.

This was a very bad day, but to me, the day everyone forgets, and is the most important, is the day this country became free and the constitution was born. Nobody KNOWS the constitution as they should and out country is falling apart today because nobody knows our constitution. All of the fixes are there. Those who take that oath, break it on a daily basis, and nobody complains. To ME... this is the day everyone has forgotten, and needs to go learn it like they never have before.

R.I.P. LTC Dave Scales - Pentagon

Dave was a very good friend and smoking buddy when we worked together at the Pentagon in the early-late 1990s. Then again in Crystal City (nearby) until that fateful day.

I cried like a baby at his memorial service and his funeral at Arlington. I must have something in my eye right now...

Dave was married and a father of two, and a concert-quality pianist, and very active in his church. He was one of the kindest people I ever knew.

But for the Grace of God, I could have been with him when the fireball incinerated him. But I had taken the day off to be with my wife and our very sick horse at Quantico. Next day we had to evac him to a horse hospital for three days. That horse (Mac) is still with us - over 30 now - and most every day I think of that horrible day, 19 years ago. In some remote way, he possibly saved my life.

But were it my time, there is no one I'd rather be with than Dave.

As a final honor, Dave was posthumously promoted to COL (he was already on the promo list).

God Bless, Dave. You will never be forgotten.

I was ironing a shirt getting ready to head to the airport to catch a flight to Atlanta. The TV news was on for background noise.

Iíll never forget all the contrails in the sky while driving to the office after Delta told me the flight was canceled.

For me, the question is "How can you possibly forget?" that day. Sadly, as has been mentioned many times, for far too many people, the response is "forget what?".

Another "I remember where/when....": My youngest son was scheduled to graduate basic training at Fort Jackson. It was doubly meaningful for me, he was graduating, and 26 years earlier, I had graduated basic training myself at Fort Jackson. His graduation date was 9-12-2001. Needless to say, we were late, and missed the ceremony. We did finally get access, and found him in his company area. It was a bittersweet celebration.

Cannot, and will not, forget. God Bless and keep those we lost, their families and friends.
