From Glenn E. Huiett Jr.:
We were sitting in our bedroom preparing to go to work. Our son entered the room and told us that a commercial jet had just flown into one of the world trade center towers. Not sure of what he had just told us we tuned the t.v to KATU news, just in time to see the second plane hit the other tower. We were caught between shock,extreme sadness,and eventually anger.
Myself being a prior service member my first response was,something needs to be done and done right NOW. I called the ARMY recruiter and requested to re-enlist A.S.A.P.. only to be told I was to old to go. But that does not mean that I gave up, I salute every military troop that I cross paths with and thank them for their dedication to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!!
