...July 4th - 2002...
...a Day like all Days except I will now NEVER FORGET...
...how blessed I was to be there that Day to personally touch and sign-in on thoroughly twisted, rusted, flag draped steel beams from Sept 11th's World Trade Center and Pentagon that had just arrived on 2 flatbed trailers at Rancho Cucamonga, California's Chaffey College.
...They came to rest right next to where now deceased DARRYL KILE once pitched...
...with my handwritten words now etched on them...
.."GOD BLESS RICK RESCORLA - IA DRANG-1965"..
...to pay honor to Tower 2's Lifesaving Head of Security for MORGAN STANLEY Brokerage House who died while saving 1,000's of other lives on Sept 11th ..just like he saved 100's of his men's lives at the Battle of IA DRANG-1965. ..See.. www.LzXray.com ..
...Mirroring the fervor of World War II's brave young men volunteering in droves for military service after the Attack on Pearl Harbor...
...yesterday ..little American Kids of all sizes, races and gender also crawled all over these sacred twisted steel beams to sign in Salutations of their own with press cameras just-a clicking away.
..(For more ..see today's.. www.DailyBulletin.com ..and the Print Edition of San Bernardino County's INLAND VALLEY DAILY BULLETIN and the Los Angeles Times)
...With -ALL IN GOD's PLAN- continuing ..I was further blessed to meet a wonderful employee of ..RICK RESCORLA's.. MORGAN STANLEY-Owned Services handled the incoming calls from the families and loved ones of those missing and killed on Sept 11th =
...A sharing back to MORGAN STANLEY Heroes...
...A sharing back to Battle of IA DRANG-1965 / "WE WERE SOLDIERS" Hero friends of ..RICK RESCORLA.
Be adivsed out there:
Americans from the Cradle to the Grave really DO understand the Times we are living in =

...This Collection of Sept 11th World Trade Center and Pentagon Debris had traveled on a flatbed trailer 3,508 Miles (The long way with stops) and will become the foundation of two Sept 11th Memorials, 1st one in Rancho Cucamonga, California and then a duplicate Memorial made there for New York City.
...An accompanying flatbed carried a heavily damaged Red, White and now GRAY Queens New York NYFD Firetruck that will soon be part of a Rancho Cucamonga, California Fire Museum.
...How thrilled I was to personally witness all kids and adults, so gladly say our .."UNDER GOD".. Pledge of Allegiance spontaneously and proudly sang our Star Bangled Banner while encircling tattered and torn remnants of our Nation's 2nd Day of Infamy.
...Not getting much sleep last night ..I'd have to say that July 4th - 2002 ..the Day Sept 11th came to Chaffey College in California...
...will be a Day I that will truly NEVER FORGET.
...12,715... RICK RESCORLA ..Medal of Freedom Award Petition Signatures for President BUSH to consider and...
...that's just ...OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!
...Last Veterans Day Weekend GOD made it possible at the last minute for me to go to our IA DRANG Alumni Dinner in Washington D.C. to pay honor to our fellow Vet and Hero of Sept 11th's Tower 2 ..RICK RESCORLA..
...and then to go over to the Pentagon to pay tribute to our very own Freeper -BKO- and HILLARY-Fighter No. 1 ..BARBARA K. OLSON.. who was literally vaporized crashing into the Pentagon on our 2nd Day of Infamy.
...On July 4, 2002 they both came back in spirit 1,000's of miles away to my son's Chaffey College in the form of World Trade Center and Pentagon Debris and a 9/11 New York City Firetruck ...to be parked between the Pitcher's mound where my son and DARRYL KILE pitched from on one side and on the other side the Goal Posts where my son kicked 50 yard field goals when he wasnt't tackling runners as a Defensive Linebacker.
...ALL IN GOD's PLAN further connected me with one of RICK's fellow MORGAN STANLEY Employees who felt as compelled as I was to be there ...to share this all with that wondrous day.
...GOD does indeed work His Miracles in very loving ways...???
