I was at work on the day shift. Our Pathologist came in around 8 am and said an airplane flew into the World Trade Center tower in NY. The Radiology department next to the lab had a TV in their waiting room. I spent the whole day running back and forth from my work to watch their TV. I remember being very scared by the whole thing and I wanted nothing more than to leave work, pick my kids up from their school and huddle at home with them. I was very, vary scared. When the towers fell, I could feel my heart fall with them. I will never forget the fear and sorrow I felt that day.

I was in New York, going to work, completely oblivious to what was happening until university security guard stopped me at the gate and told me the offices were closed due to emergency, at which point I turned the radio on...

I was working nights at the PD so I was home sleeping. My wife called me and woke me up. She said "We are under attack!". While I was trying to wake up and figure out what she was talking about, I was thinking to myself that this was The United States of America, who would be insane enough to attack us (thinking military strike). I turned on the TV to find out what she was talking about.
On an after note, the businesses ran out of American flags to sell so the local news printed a full page full color flag every day for several days.

at that time i was working a full time job as a fleet mechanic for WalMart and worked at my brothers shop on my days off. when i got to his shop that morning he had the tv on and the third plane i believe had just crashed into the Pentagon building. but they were showing shots of the plains crashing into the Twin Towers, over and over. absolutely one of the worst things i have ever seen.

I was literally in bed after a long day. I was in Korea at the time and the phone rang in my room and it was Ola, my good friend, former Marine and expert on everything interwebz. He had a habit of needing to fall asleep with the TV on when the first news hit.

Clicked on the TV and the first report that we got was that it was an unmanned plane that had flown off course. By now Ola and I are rapid firing questions back and forth at each other, like either of us had any f*cking clue, but we knew that plane wasn't "unmanned".

After about ten minutes Ola, Ray D and Peter were all in my room, sitting there at about 0100 or so local time just rocking back and forth and Ola kept saying "Someone is going to get their ass kicked when my boys (his Marines) get their hands on them."

About 0400 local time we got word the base (Yongsan) was on lockdown, and as we were military contractors, we were "confined" to the hotel and were NOT to go out into Seoul proper under any circumstances.

Two days later we were allowed back on base and we had to attend this VERY strict briefing about driving a military vehicle in public. How and were to park, how we were to assign someone to "watch" vehicle if we were off post. How if something happened and we were on base we were NOT to try and "help" because we wouldn't know their tactics and would not be dressed the same, so if we picked up a rifle or something we WOULD be considered a threat.

I will NEVER forget that night, or the aftermath.

We were in contract review/ negotiations in Tennessee. We had been in NYC two weeks prior and drove right by them to go to dinner down in the theatre district though.

Sad, sad day!!

We had no idea until I walked home from school and my mom was outside waiting for me (which she never did)..come to find out, the pilots of the planes were unknowingly trained in my home town where we have an old military airport from WW2 that is now a private small plane airport that teaches classes
