Personal Reflection

What were you doing on 9/11? (Or, What was your interviewee doing on 9/11?)

Baltimore, MD 21201 - I attended a funeral for a family friend with my Dad. 9/11 was the last day I ever spent alone with my Dad. We did not even know the attack happened until after the funeral.

How did 9/11 affect you personally and or professionally?

The agency I worked for sent me as part of the fist team sent to the World Trade Center on 09/14 for recovery operations. I spent 34 days working the pile of WTC 7 with 7 days at the Fresh Kills Landfill. I then spent the next 2 years overseas fighting the War on Terror. I suffer terribly from PTSD from this time of my life.

What do you want future generations of professionals, particularly those going into your field, to know about 9/11?

I just want people to never forget what happened that day and how it brought America's people together.

On 9/11, what sector were you (OR your interviewee) in?

Government – Non-aviation
