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

Daniel Cutrer was in the Coast Guard during the time of 9/11. That morning he was at his office in Mobile, Alabama. He watched the first strike with his boss on the tv. At first, they both thought that this was a terrible aviation accident. Then after watching the second strike they quickly realized that it was not an accident.

Please see the attached video to learn more about Daniel Cutrer's personal reflections.

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

Daniel Cutrer mentions that he and everyone else in the Coast Guard had to step up and make sure that they were doing their job to the best of their ability during this time of uncertainty in the country. The day after 9/11 Cutrer had to fly from Mobile to Vermont to pick up a member of the New York Emergency Management Department that had been on a fishing trip and needed to get back to his duties. This moment stood out in Cutrer's professional career as it was one of the weirdest flights he had ever made. There was complete radio silence other than him and ATC communicating, and no other planes were moving around at the airport.
