9-11-2009, I Remember

In honor of those who died that tragic day 8 years ago and in honor of those who continue to sacrifice.I am honored to be married to the hero who wears this bracelet in honor of his fallen brothers

This is the first year that my husband has been with us on 9-11, every other year he has been with trainees, deployed or prepping for deployment.

I will never forget, everyday that my husband slips on that uniform is a reminder to me about what we have lost and what we continue to lose as a result of that day.

His Drill Sergeant Badge that says "This We'll Defend"

These Colors don't run....4th Infantry Division patch, his "combat" patch, a Division with rich history
His current patch, 1st Cavalry Division, "First Team" , another division with rich history
U.S. Army, HOOAH!

I will never forget the victims or the heroes and I will never forget those who serve and continue to sacrifice today.My Soldier honoring his fallen brothers...an intimate photo, it barely captures the moment....

That last picture is so beautiful and sad at the same time. It makes you feel like you are living that heartache with him, and you can't even see his face. J.R. and I talked about how this year it was strange to us how many people didn't even realize it was September 11th. Not that they didn't know the date, but that they had forgotten it's significance. I want our country to be strong and move on from tragedy, but to also remember the ashes that it had to rise from, and the men, women and children that died during the tragedy and in the war again terrorism since.
