9/11: Where Were You?

September 11, 2021, will mark 20 years since the 9/11 terror attacks.
For many, it felt like the world stopped turning.
In the aftermath, we saw the best in humanity amidst the worst.
We sought connection to our fellow man, some turned to faith, others tried to make sense of it all. Brave men and women risked it all by joining the military.
Most have a story to share.

What's your 9/11 story?

Did you enlist in the military on or after 9/11? Where were you? What is your connection to 9/11?
