This weekend we remember those who lost their lives as a result of the terrorists attacks on September 11th 2001. The immediate terror of the events on that day, had a huge impact on our nation. But, then there is the lingering damage that is done in the form of injured or killed members of our US armed forces as a result of the military action taken in response to the terrorists attacks. We as a nation should weep for there sacrifices, but we should always remember their sacrifices and support them and their families who survived them. And like so many others in our country, both of us remember what happened on that date, and support our troops and the actions our government has had to take as a result of the events on that day, and other attacks on our country.
On September 11th, we attended the California Capital Airshow that was held at Mather Field which is just a mile from our home. The air show was a wonderful event where we and thousands of others celebrated our country as we watched many exceptional aerobatic performers and viewed a lot of great air craft displays.
One of the demonstations was a re-creation of the attack on Perl Harbor executed by the Japanese on December 7th, 1941. This demonstration was very realistic and made the hair on our harms stand on end.
The wonderful climax to the air show was the fly over by a US Coast Guard C-130 that deployed over $10,000 worth of flowers in order to remember those that perished as in the attacks of 9/11/2001.
As Carol and I have been doing for a while now, we had the chance to remember and thank those who have served in our US armed forces.
Happy Camping! Eric and Carol Anderson
