Any locals besides me gonna be there?  I was part of the escort last year and the event was mind numbing.  You do not need to be a member of the PGR to ride or attend this event.

I was in the shower when my father made a chilling statement that one of the twin towers was on fire, I wrapped a towel around my waist to see the TV, at that time the second plane was captured on screen as it approached the second tower.  I went numb and stood there in a trance.  When my senses returned I called my 1SG to see if he had the TV on, he didnt (we had an inspection scheduled for my station that morning).  I explained what I knew to him as he turned on the TV.  He was speechless and said he would call back.  I got dressed, and readied myself the best I could for the day.  I was on active duty as a recruiter on this fatefull day.  I spent the day partly in shock and took as many phone calls as I could.  To see those firefighters and LEOs in action, words alone will never describe their heroics.  If you do nothing else on this day, say a silent word of thanks to these special people and remember their selfless deeds.

May God continue to bless America and ALL it's people.

I would love to be a part of something like that!  I do pray the same.........and that we NEVER forget.  Looking forward to riding out to Shavksville once we get settled down in PA.  SOP, thanks for representing the Concours folks here. :)

I'll second that!

I was at work when my Mom called my cell.  She informed me that my Brother-In-Law was there on a business meeting.  My sister received a call from John (her husband, my brother-in-law) after the first plane hit the tower.  He said he was OK because he was in the other tower.  He was getting his people together ready to evacuate.  While he was talking to my sister, the second plane hit.  He said he had to go.  Smoke was coming in through the vents and people were starting to panic.  He was a "Take Charge" kind of guy.  As our family heard from some of the LOE's on the scene, he made it out with about six others.  But he went back in to help the firefighters that were having trouble getting the hoses and equipment through the doors.  He was one hell of a human being!

Does this mean we get a "Re-Do" on life too?

Here's what happens when a 911 truther shows up. 

Between the bagpipes and echo taps I lost it.
