Our Flag and Memories of 9/11

It was a simple act this morning: lowering the flag to half staff to remember 9/11/2001.  It was a cool and wet morning and at first, I hesitated.  Why should I head out within a week of chemotherapy, etc.  I could find all kinds of reasons to sit in my comfortable chair and sip coffee...

I was still on active duty; in fact, my crew had landed from an overseas mission in the middle of the night and headed home for some well deserved rest that was not to be.  Half asleep and time zoned from a trip half way around the world, I was surprised to see and hear the command post line light up barely 5 hours later.  The wing commander asked me to head to the command post right away.  Had I seen the TV?  "No".  "Be right there".
