One of my other focuses here is to talk about history. A couple years ago, I briefly talked about 9/11 and the impact to me. Last year, I talked about the aircraft that were involved in 9/11. This year, I want to talk briefly about the response to 9/11. I am not going to include the invasion of Iraq in this as I feel that was a completely separate action. Nor am I going to really talk about the ongoing battles in Afghanistan (although they are related). Again for this post, the pictures are not mine. Most of them come from the U.S. Navy's official site (navy.mil) and there are many other cool pictures there. Check them out some time.
