Remembering 9/11, nine years later

Staff Sgt. Pierce Franklin Fire Department Franklin had family in the pentagon when the plane crashed into it, but that wasn’t the only thing he remembered about that day. “Being a fireman, I watched all the firemen walk into the towers that day and never come back down. I knew that they had made the ultimate sacrifice for people they didn’t even know, but that’s part of the job. It’s more a calling really.” (Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Krystal Tomlin)
