Remembering 9/11, nine years later

Senior Airman Ruben Carranza, 162nd Financial Management - Airman Carranza was listening to the radio at a civilian job when he found out about the attacks. Having no access to a television, he didn’t actually know what happened until his wife picked him up from work. The first words to come out of her mouth were about the attacks. They spent the rest of the day watching the news. “I remember just watching the news for the whole afternoon with my wife. We just kept watching the replay of the towers falling over and over again. I think we fell asleep watching the news without talking about anything else. It was that big of an impact.” (Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Krystal Tomlin)
