10 Years

This weekend, we remember the victim's of 9.11.2001. I'm not going to try and put into words the anger and sadness that still fill my heart today.  Instead, I'm simply going to offer this. 
The flag pictured above arrived in the mail one day.  Included with the flag, was this document.
Since receiving this, it has had a special place in my office.  But it didn't feel right leaving it down there this weekend.  This is not a flag I was weathered and destroyed, this is something to hold on to for a long time.  But this weekend, it will do what it was meant to do. Fly proudly as a symbol of our country.
So thank you Jarrod and the members of the 777th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron.
And thank you all those who have fought, died and continue to serve as a result of what happened 10 years ago.
God bless the murdered victims and their family's of the 9/11 attack.
God bless the the United States Military who have and continue putting themselves into harms way.
God bless America.
