9/11/01: Remembering Eleven Years Later...

September 11, 2012 and 11 years later, it has not changed the amount of tears that flow on this date.  This is "No Easy Day" for many reasons.

May 1, 2011 was an event in history and deserves its significance among all the other millions of micro events, in our continued vigilance.  The single success of "Operation Neptune Spear" is a lonely celebration point for those countless thousands who contributed to the accomplishment of the mission.  Analysts included.  Our "OPS Risk" professionals adapted that night and all of our team came home safe.

Remembering those who didn't make it home that original 9/11 morning of terror, is why we will never forget, nor shall we ever surrender.  That is why we also remember, all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice this past decade.  They also number in the thousands.  Fallen on foreign soil.  And even to this day, back here at home.  This is our next front.  If you have not donated to Got Your Six, Wounded Warrior Project , Team Rubicon or others yet, what are you waiting for?

This day is also about the survivors.  Those who have not forgotten and have given so much since then.  The survivors are the people we continue to encourage, to keep fighting the fight and to make sure that the rest of us do so as well.
