I was an Information Systems Technician stationed in Keflavik, Iceland at NCTS Keflavik with my family. On 9/11 we were on leave in Hollywood, FL. It took us almost a week to get back to the base in Iceland. Upon return I was full time Auxilary Security Force for the next 6 months.
It was difficult to be away from the base on that morning. As a member of the military all I wanted to do was be back on the base and contributing to the cause.
We are here in the middle hour of our grief. So many have suffered so great a loss, and today we express our nation's sorrow. We come before God to pray for the missing and the dead, and for those who love them.
