Serving The Best Troops and Veterans In The World !! | laurenmarlowe

Welcome To The FR Canteen

September 11th

Never Forget

flagline

September 11th is designated as Patriot Day, in memory of the nearly three thousand people who died in the September 11th, 2001 attacks on our Country.

"After the attacks on 9/11, America resolved that we would go on the offense against our enemies, and we would not distinguish between the terrorists and those who harbor and support them. All Americans honor the selfless men and women of our Armed Forces, the dedicated members of our public safety, law enforcement, and intelligence communities, and the thousands of others who work hard each day to protect our country, secure our liberty, and prevent future attacks."

"By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), the Congress has designated September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day."

"I call upon the Governors of the United States and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, as well as appropriate officials of all units of government, to direct that the flag be flown at half staff on Patriot Day.

I also call upon the people of the United States to observe Patriot Day with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and remembrance services, to display the flag at half staff from their homes on that day, and to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 a.m. eastern daylight time to honor the innocent Americans and people from around the world who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. " George W. Bush

~Remembering 911~



***
Psalm 46 1-7
1. God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
2. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3. though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.[c]

4. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.
6. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

7. The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.


~We Will Not Forget~
My Gratitude To Our Armed Forces and Their Families

I knew both were FReepers....I’d seen their posts. It was so shocking to hear their names. I first saw a picture of BCM and knew right away who it was, before any names were attached to those missing.

For days we huddled around a little tv at work. More than a few lost interest...I could not not watch and listen as I worked.

Lot of concern after all planes were grounded. Had to have been an issue for you, too.

I cried for days...just posting pictures, and reading accounts tonight has been tough.

Thanks Connie...I had no idea when I put that together back in 2003 in IRaq for the second anniv. it would still be in use today. I guess I did a good job huh! :)

And thanks kathy for covering for my lack of advanced posting skills on FR.

11 years later and nothing makes today any better for me.

I still remember that day in Midland when this was happening. Not sleeping that night.

“84th Floor west office 12 people trapped.”

The words were scrawled on a note by Connecticut resident Randy Scott on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, when the World Trade Center was attacked. Scott perished that fateful day, but the note withstood the collapse of the towers and was passed from hand to hand for nearly ten years before it finally reached his family, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Scott’s wife, Denise, learned about what her family refers to as “The Note” in August 2011. She had previously believed her husband died instantly after Flight 175 flew into the tower near the offices of Euro Brokers, where he worked. The scrap of paper has robbed the family of any illusion Randy Scott died a quick and merciful death.

“I spent 10 years hoping that Randy wasn’t trapped in that building,” Denise, 57, said to the newspaper from her Stamford home, with two of her three daughters, Rebecca, 29, and Alexandra, 22, at her side. “You don’t want them to suffer. They’re trapped in a burning building. It’s just an unspeakable horror. And then you get this10 years later. It just changes everything.”

The Note not only has the final words written by Scott, it also has a trace amount of his blood, according to the Advocate. DNA testing confirmed a match and helped the New York City Medical Examiner’s office track down his family, the paper reported.

Good morning, Everyone.

Good morning to our

military, our allies, and their families

Thank you, Lauren, for preparing the Canteen for today’s activities.

DC Metroland Weather

~ Today... Sunny. High 78F. Winds light and variable.

~ Tonight...Generally clear. Low 53F. Winds light and variable.

I've been watching some of the specials on the history channel.
I hope they show the one about the town in Newfoundland
who helped all those people from the diverted planes.
That was a wonderful story.
Speaking of that, let's not forget our friends
and allies who were there for us.

Here's one to remember...Operation Yellow Ribbon was commenced by Transport Canada to handle the diversion of civilian airline flights in response to the September 11 attacks in 2001. Canada’s goal was to ensure that potentially destructive air traffic be removed from U.S. airspace as quickly as possible, and away from potential U.S. targets, and instead place these aircraft on the ground in Canada, mostly at military and civilian airports in the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador and British Columbia (and also several in Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec) where their destructive potential could be better contained and neutralized. As none of the aircraft proved to be a threat, Canada and Canadians subsequently undertook to play host to the many people aboard the aircraft during the ensuing delay in reaching their destinations.
Canada commenced the operation after the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grounded all aircraft across the United States. The FAA then worked with Transport Canada to reroute incoming international flights to airports in Canada.
During the operation, departing flights, with the exception of police, military, and humanitarian flights were cancelled, marking the first time that Canada shut down its airspace. As a result of Operation Yellow Ribbon, 255 aircraft were diverted to 17 different airports across the country.

Another thing to remember ~ the people of Newfoundland....On September 11, 2001, with United States airspace closed due to the terrorist attacks, Gander International played host to 39 airliners, totaling 6,122 passengers and 473 crew, as part of Operation Yellow Ribbon. Gander International received more flights than any other Canadian airport involved in the operation apart from Halifax. The 6,595 passengers and crew accounted for the third highest total of passengers that landed at a Canadian airport involved in the operation, behind Vancouver and Halifax.
A major reason that Gander received so much traffic was partly due to its ability to handle large aircraft, but primarily because Transport Canada and Nav Canada instructed pilots coming from Europe to avoid the airports in major urban centers of Central Canada, like Lester B. Pearson in Toronto and Montréal-Dorval. The reception these travelers received in the central Newfoundland communities near the airport has been one of the most widely reported happy stories surrounding that day.
To honour the people of Gander and Halifax for their support during the operation, Lufthansa named a new Airbus A340-300 "Gander/Halifax" on May 16, 2002. That airplane is listed with the registration D-AIFC, and was the first aircraft in the whole fleet with a city name outside of Germany.
The airport was the site for Canada's memorial service to mark the first anniversary of the attack, over which Prime Minister Jean Chrétien, Transport Minister David Collenette, US Ambassador to Canada Paul Cellucci, and provincial and local officials presided. 2,500 of the 6,600 people that were diverted there the year before also attended the ceremony.

And let's not forget the delusional idiots who continue to assert
that our own government did this horrific act on its own people.

Another concerted effort to divert attention away
from the murderers that were responsible.

And THANK YOU
to President Bush who let the terrorist and the world know
that if you attack us, we will show no mercy!

Just got back from my walk.
Going to check out pings.

The FR Canteen is ALWAYS

Come on in and sit for a while.
There's always plenty of coffee, tea,
pancakes,
conversation, silliness,
and plain old BS

REMEMBER THEM ~ DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above Honoring those who have served before.

Good morning, Beachy!

*HUGS*

Memories of a sad day - also a Tuesday morning, beautiful as September mornings often are in this part of the country. I was sitting at my computer in the living room watching one of the early news shows when the second plane hit. When the Pentagon was hit at 9:45, it was obvious that we were at war again.

Some of my wife's family were finishing up a European vacation that morning. Their flight from London to Dulles was diverted to Gander, where they enjoyed the hospitality of Newfoundland for several days before finally making it home.

Good morning CMN ((HUGS))

I was sitting right where I am now...at work in front of the computer. Oblivious to what was going on until my husband called to ask if we were being let out. That’s when I got the news...went to the office next door where there was a tv and watched. Was able to see the Pentagon fire from the building catwalk.

I remember being angry that our country hadn’t protected us like I felt they should have. Those lunatic, murdering bastards should never have been able to be in this country much less hijacking out planes.

I wonder if I saw your wife’s family in the documentary about Gander and Newfoundland?

It was just wonderful what those people did for complete strangers. I’m not only awed by that but also what people were able to accomplish in such a short time.

Good Morning, all you Canteen folks, and all the ships at sea!

We all vividly recall That Day, eleven years ago now. We remember where we were, what we ate, what we were doing and how the planet stopped rotating for a few hours.

Yesterday evening, The Bride and I attended a PTA meeting at high school. The whole of the campus was festooned with flags, banners, bunting and borders. I am usually very cold and cynical about the next generation; that sight left me not unpleasantly surprised.

That day, I was immersed in Active Duty folderol followed by missions and orders. Today, eleven years after, I am immersed in wedding plans and a new beginning.

But I shall never forget.

Went to the vet and got some eye drops for Bo. My brother noticed a little pus in his eyes before he and Debbie from Texas left for the city. It seems like the pus may be making a bit of a difference.

Good morning, Early Birds.
I hope this is a day
of remembrance for all of you.
It is for me.
I can't allow myself to forget the horror.
God bless all of you.
((((hugs))))
