Today is a the anniversary of a day that will always send a chill down my spine and I know that I am not the only one for whom the world changed that day.
I felt compelled to write about it and I hope you will bear with me as I share my memories of that day, given that I was living in America at the time, a mere 40nm from Ground Zero. The attacks that took place on the 11th of September 2001 are what eventually lead to our service men and women being called to deploy to the Middle East as part of Operation Slipper.
My memories of 911 are another reason I will be eternally grateful to those who have headed off as part of Operation Slipper. I just felt we needed to pause for a minute, on this anniversary of a horrific day in the World's history and remember those who have done whatever they were called to do in the War on Terror in order to try and keep Australia safe.
Till next time.................Thank you to all who have deployed, past and present, to serve in our name and thank you to your loved ones and friends for what it has cost them as well.
