A timeline of the morning of September 11, 2001

O

n the morning of September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists hijacked four commercial airplanes bound for California. The planes departed from airports in Boston; Newark, NJ; and Washington, D.C. September 11 would become an infamous date in American and world history, and the events of that day would forever change the world. As the world commemorates the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the following timeline, courtesy of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, can help people fully understand how events unfolded on that late-summer morning two decades ago.

planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, will eventually crash into the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center complex in New York City.

How to discuss 9/11 with children

T

wenty years ago, parents across the United States faced the delicate situation of discussing 9/11 with their children. Many adults watched their televisions with a sense of disbelief and horror on September 11, 2001, and parents were forced to explain the inexplicable events of that day to their youngsters. As the world prepares to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, many people who were children on the morning of September 11 now have children of their own. Parents may need help explaining the significance of 9/11. The 9/11 Memorial & Museum recognizes how difficult such conversations may be and offers the following tips. • Listen. The museum notes that some children will want to discuss 9/11 and terrorism and some won’t. Discussions should not be forced if kids do not want to talk about 9/11 and parents can let kids know they’re ready to listen whenever kids want to talk. Parents are urged to actively listen to kids’ concerns. • Remain calm and avoid appearing anxious. Adults should be aware of their tone when discussing 9/11 and terrorism with children. Make a concerted effort to remain calm and not appear anxious. Answer questions honestly, but also in a way that is developmentally appropriate. • Learn about 9/11 so you can answer questions truthfully. The images of 9/11 are indelible, but even adults who lived through the tragedy may not know the answers to questions kids may ask. Parents can visit 911.memorial.org to learn more about 9/11 so they’re better prepared to answer questions. • Emphasize hope. Acts of terrorism are often so horrific that they can contribute to a deep sense of despair. But parents can explain that such events also tend to bring out the best in people who are inspired to help. Emphasize the ways this happened on 9/11 and express to kids that their own acts of compassion may help to prevent future acts of violence and intolerance.

COCHISE COUNTY —2021 marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States of America. As the nation reflects on this day, Cochise County first responders, law enforcement, educators and residents recount their memories of the day and thoughts the community should keep in mind moving forward. “I clearly remember that morning, the oncoming shift as well as the offgoing shifts, just standing, sitting around the TV in shock, in disbelief, in silence as the attacks continued and the details unfolded,” said Douglas Fire Chief Kevin Lomeli. “It was horrific, it was terrifying. We soon realized that the fire service and our nation had been changed forever.” According to a 2011 analysis by the New York Times, the total cost of 9/11 to the U.S. is $3.3 trillion. The total cost in lives was nearly 3,000 according to Encyclopedia Britannica. The Herald/Review reached out to the community members in Cochise County and nationwide to share their stories of that day, and how their lives have been impacted since. Here’s what they had to say. “You knew there were human bodies in there that totally disappeared.” Those are the words of Ilene Miller, former executive director of Nassau and Suffolk County Police Reserves in Long Island, New York. Miller and her husband, Loring, who

both reside in Sierra Vista, were assigned to assist with escorting and evacuating residents at Ground Zero on Sept. 12, 2001. “When I got there ... The sight was just so unbelievable, so inconceivable, so surreal that you didn’t know where you were, you

didn’t know what you were doing, you didn’t know what was gonna come next; you just couldn’t even take it in,” said Loring Miller, former president and CEO of the Nassau and Suffolk County Police Reserves, and sergent and director of Special Operations of the

Nassau County SPCA. “We’re from New York, we’ve seen these buildings, we’ve been in these buildings, and here they are on the ground, ash,” he said. “The fire is still burning in the pit ... rescuers all over the place, and we’re just coming in on this picture, and how can we — how can anyone even make a dent? “I saw the worst evil I had ever seen ... and the question was, ‘what are we gonna do?’ “ He said he and his wife were called in under the SPCA to rescue pets and any other animals from Ground Zero, but ended up also assisting with escorting residents back to the remains of their apartments to retrieve any surviving belongings. “We went into basically powerless, very severely damaged buildings that first day,” Miller said. “We go in the apartment, they’d open the front door, and they’re ready to race in and look for, you know, anything, again from their pet to their belongings or whatever that they were allowed to bring out, and we’d literally have to grab them by the shirt because there’s no wall.” Because of the damage to the buildings, Loring Miller said the elevators weren’t functional and that he and Ilene had to escort residents up and down flight by flight of stairs. “One of the men assigned in my group had just had lung surgery and he had severe asthma, and of course none of his medications,” said Ilene Miller. “Now, I have some asthma, so what did I pack in the backpack I wore the entire time I was at — you know, Ground Zero? All kinds of emergency asthma equipment, from more inhalers, to nebulizers, to anything I could think of because that was most important to me for my well being ... “He told me about his situation, and the first thing I did is give him an inhaler ... And then, on my radio I hear from my chief, and another radio, the deputy chief, asking me where I was, why am I taking so long to get my group back and what’s going on. And I explained about this man who very likely could die on my watch, and I said, ‘no one’s dying on my watch today ... “I said ‘and I gave him some asthma inhalers and medications and things in my backpack,’ and I heard screaming from both of these people ... (They said) ‘We do not administer medication!’ and I said, ‘and then he will die.’ ... To me, a human life came first, wasn’t that why we were there, for each human life? So I just said ‘I can’t hear you, I think my radio’s going dead.’ “I did what I had to do with him and then I got back to the staging area, and I totally disobeyed orders.” “It’s another nightmare to see their faces when you tell them that their mother was never going to come back,”said Ramon Melendez Sr., who lives in Pennsylvania and is the father of four grown sons; Melendez lost his wife Mary Melendez when the second

plane hit the World Trade Center 20 years ago. Melendez recalled the morning of 9/11 when his wife, who worked near the 90th floor in the World Trade Center, called him after he had arrived home from work and told him to turn on the TV. “She was telling me she saw smoke, and then she said that the intercoms in the office were telling people to leave and then they would change their mind and said ‘no, stay because the building is secure,’ “ said Melendez. “I was telling her ‘leave’ and she said that she had to find her supervisor ... As I’m standing there and I’m looking at the TV, I see ... the second plane hit her building. I just — I just lost it. And then the phone went dead, and I knew right there and then that everything was going to change for me and all I kept thinking was about her. And I kept thinking if anything happened to her, how would I explain it to my kids?”

Lasting ramifications of 9/11 Life after Sept. 11 quickly etched itself into a new reality. According to the United States Department of Justice’s Oct. 19, 2011 report, “ Confronting Discrimination in the Post-9/11 Era: Challenges and Opportunities Ten Years Later,” the Federal Bureau of Investigations reported a 1,600% increase in anti-Muslim hate crime incidents in 2001. In 2016, this trend continued as the New York Times reported that hate crimes against American Muslims rose to their highest levels since 2001. Dr. Carlos Quijada, psychology professor at Cochise College, said that this type of discrimination comes from people associating those of Middle Eastern decent with the terrorists who organized and carried out the Sept. 11 attacks. “What happens cognitively is very interesting,” said Quijada. “There (were) several studies done post-9/11 — So the people who experienced greater fear and greater anger tend to put people in groups. So after 9/11, this fear and this anger turned to all the people we associated with the attackers, which in general, we can say, Middle Eastern descent.”

Effects of 9/11 on military intelligence “Having been doing this for 32 years, you know we always want to learn from anything,” said Maj. Gen. Anthony Hale, commanding general of Fort Huachuca. “As

Melendez said that he didn’t tell his two younger sons, aged 5 and 6 years old at the time, about the death of their mother for two weeks, as he and his eldest son searched the hospitals in New York City for her. “I told my son we had to go to New York and search the hospitals and search the burn centers, and walked all over the place just trying to figure out if she made it out,” said Melendez. “We spent two weeks and nothing. I made a promise to her that if anything ever happened, that we would raise these kids to be grown men, and make sure that they are able to fend for themselves ... And those were the words she said, ‘make sure they grow up to be men,’ and they’re men now. I’m just happy that I was able to accomplish that.”

we look back on 9/11, and we’ve looked at ourselves, of course we want to improve our readiness posture. It’s all about the military, our army, our soldiers being ready to execute their mission. “I don’t think we can neglect any enemy. We see what an organization did to America that was not a formidable ground force. It wasn’t state-sponsored, it was a terrorist organization. I think we must be prepared to respond to any conflict when our nation calls.” Hale emphasized reflecting on lessons learned from the previous involvement with conflicts in World War I, World War II, Afghanistan and Iraq to build upon their defense posture. “I think that we definitely have to look at what we’ve learned over two decades of COIN (Counterinsurgency) fight and our CT (Counter Terrorism) fight there. And now as we go back to large-scale combat operations ... We have to look at those lessons that we’ve learned over the past two decades to make sure that we don’t make those mistakes again, and to make sure that we’re ready to not only compete, but also fight and win. “Just look at how many service members we’ve lost in both of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan ... That wasn’t in vain. So, we got to make sure that we are better the next time the military is called upon so we can fight and win our nation(’s) wars. And winning does matter. It matters to all of us.” The Associated Press reported on Aug. 27 that more than 7,000 U.S. service men and women lost their lives in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq with an approximate cost of the wars expected to surpass $6 trillion.

Effects of 9/11 on law enforcement The effects of 9/11 also influenced those in the law enforcement and fire service fields. Sierra Vista Police Chief Adam Thrasher said that since 9/11, there has been more interdepartmental communication and coordination amongst law enforcement agencies in the county. “We know each other by first name, we have each other in the phones, we can call each other, they are always willing to help,” said Thrasher. “We’ve had a couple of instances here where we’ve had to evacuate the high school for bomb threats. “We evacuate the high school, we go to a reunification center and I’ve got Homeland Security (and) Border Patrol standing there, waiting saying ‘what do you want us to do for you?’ ... That’s not one of their primary duties, but they are there to help.” Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels also emphasized the heightened focus on border security since 9/11. “Our border is a big impact on an entry into our country, and we’re a gateway to the good, the bad and the dangerous that come through our southwest border,” said Dannels. “In recent months, we’ve had just in the Tucson sector — which is part of Cochise County— 200,000 getaways along the southwest border. Right now, we’re seeing 1,100 a day on the southwest border coming in — that are not caught — that are somewhere in the United States.”

Effects of 9/11 on fire service In the fire service, more emphasis has been placed on cross communication with law enforcement and enhancing the efficiency of responses. “We’re starting to do some training for domestic terrorist-type events, but this really pushed us forward on leaps and bounds,”

Douglas Fire Department Chief Kevin Lomeli.

said Fry Fire Chief Mark Savage. “It really helped us integrate with the law enforcement community. We’re doing a whole lot more integrated training and responses now. I don’t think that’s the only response to 9/11, but I think it’s also a function of the increasing acts of violence events that we’re seeing.” Brian Jones, fire chief for Sierra Vista Fire and Medical Services, said that 9/11 has placed more emphasis on improving the efficiency of responses. “We are always looking at ways to more efficiently and safely respond to emergency calls,” said Jones. “Based on the nature of the call, we either just send an ambulance or we will send just a fire truck,” said Jones. “If somebody is in cardiac arrest, then we will send the forces because you’re going to need the manpower.” “We always approach every scene with precaution and safety standards,” said Bisbee Fire Chief George Castillo. “Anytime there’s any type of major incident, we’ll approach it much safer, be more aware, and utilize the resources as needed in the community.”

20 years later, what should the community keep in mind?

Two common themes: Never forget and remember how people came together to help those in need.

Sierra Vista Fire and Medical Services Chief Brian Jones.

“We all need to remember the importance of not forgetting everybody that was affected that day — so many lost, loved ones, friends, and unfortunately the impacts of 9/11 continue to this day,” said Lomeli. “ It’s also important that we continue to educate our youth for decades to come, so that they don’t forget and they’re fully aware of our history and the attacks of September eleventh.” Dannels and Hale called for unity. “Over the past several years, the country has become more divided, and I think we need to as Americans remember and embody the sentiment that in times of peace and in times of war, remember what the military does for America and for our freedoms,” said Hale. Dannels echoed Hale’s sentiment. “The day we forget 9/11 is a day that we are going to be in trouble in this country,” said Dannels. “We have to stand united as the United States of America, as Americans, so we can be the greatest country on earth.” Quijada emphasized a balance of the two. “It comes up to a decision; what are you going to focus on?” said Quijada. “The fear, the anger and the attacker? Or focus on the goodness of humanity and how we were able to come together, and help each other and pull each other out and support each other?”


More community members share experiences What Is Your Personal Experience With 9/11: I was living in Anchorage, Alaska, and had been flying for one of the many ondemand charter flying services there. All flights were immediately grounded “until further notice.” Meanwhile, moose and caribou hunting seasons were in full swing. Hundreds of hunters had been flown to remote areas, each with a prearranged pickup date. With no ability to communicate beyond their camps, everyone was completely unaware of the events of that day, which for many was their scheduled pickup. With no change in the imposed flight restriction, and hunting groups exhausting their food provisions, the situation became more dire. Eventually, an emergency order allowed special flights to collect hunters. Many pilots chose to bring newspaper accounts rather than try to explain the reason for the “tardy” pickup. What Is One Thing The Community Should Keep In Mind: 9/11 was a wake up call. The general chaos that followed in Alaska and repeated around the country underscored our collective lack of preparation. We have lived under a “New Normal” ever since. Are You Seeing Any Ramifications To This Day: Memories of 9/11 are waning, but democracy exists in an even more challenging time.

Bill Riordan What Is Your Personal Experience With 9/11: Are reminders of a painful past necessary? What Is One Thing The Community Should Keep In Mind: We shouldn’t forget what happened but we are entitled to live happy lives, and that requires us to let go of the grief of terrible times and to move on. Are You Seeing Any Ramifications To This Day: Are we being reminded Sept. 11, 2001, brought out the best in us — compassion, empathy, charity, and a sense of unity? Or is it reminder of a painful past? After the reminder of this painful tragedy passes, however, our memories and feelings about this catastrophe will, once again, become more muted and less painful. That’s how it should be. Life-changing tragic events dot the lives of all of us — the death of a loved one, loss of a home, the end of a relationship, or the loss of a job. How we cope with these calamities often determines the quality of our lives. We must not be imprisoned by anxiety or grief by events like Sept. 11, 2001. It’s not healthy or helpful to repeatedly re-experience the pain of old wounds. Self-inflicted suffering is pointless and damaging, likewise the use of these memories to punish others. We shouldn’t forget what happened but we are entitled to live happy lives, and that requires us to let go of the grief of terrible times and to move on.

Ramon Melendez

What Is Your Personal Experience With 9/11: I worked as a support clerk for a brokerage. A coworker came into the department and stated that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. Then we heard the news of the other planes crashing, into the other tower, the Pentagon and the field in Pennsylvania. The phones had stopped ringing and the whole floor was silent. The areas that had TV monitors had crowds of people watching. At 10:30 that morning the company was closed. I drove home listening to further reports. I was devastated. I called my father who calmed me down and told me to turn off the TV and curl up with a good book. I was not able to do that. What Is One Thing The Community Should Keep In Mind: Never get too complacent. Are You Seeing Any Ramifications To This Day: All of the enhanced security measures at airports and certain buildings.

Hal Terrell

What Is Your Personal Experience With 9/11: I was preparing to go to work at a recently opened Lowe’s in Long Beach, California. The whole day was consumed with sorrow and prayer and at the same time hatred. In the afternoon about 2:30 p.m. we received a bomb threat and had to close the store for several hours before the bomb squad arrived. As a U.S. Army veteran, I was very distraught and could only think of all the lives lost and families broken and what was President Bush and the Congress was going to do in retaliation. That part is history and new history is now being made with an embarrassing and poorly planned exit. God bless the USA, our service members, our Afghani friends and may we pour revenge on the coward Taliban. What Is One Thing The Community Should Keep In Mind: Pray for our service members and our country.

out the window and could see smoke coming from the other tower while the office speakers were telling people to evacuate. I was talking to her on the phone and telling her to leave but she kept telling me she had to find her supervisor and as I was talking to her and watching the television I could see the second plane hit her building and then the phone went dead. That’s when I realized at that moment my life just took a big change, well so much has changed since that day, but I remember going to New York City with my oldest

Cindy Allen son and searching hospitals, burn centers, for two weeks hoping she had made it out. Having to tell my 5-year-old son and my 6-year-old son that their mother was never coming home again was one of the worst thing in my life. Also having to call my other son who was in the military and tell him the news was also my worst memory. There is so much that happened in my life since then, so much to mention and ’till this day both physically and mentality it has affected my life and my children’s life.

What Is Your Personal Experience With 9/11: I was in Central NY helping my mother. When we were told what was happening we turned on the radio and it was like War of Worlds! I sobbed all night in front of the TV. What Is One Thing The Community Should Keep In Mind: Pay attention Are You Seeing Any Ramifications To This Day: Yes more patriotism

What Is Your Personal Experience With 9/11: I lost my wife Mary Melendez that day on the 92nd floor. What Is One Thing The Community Should Keep In Mind: Sept. 11, 2001, will always stay in my mind and until this day it has. Are You Seeing Any Ramifications To This Day: On that day I can remember her calling me to tell me to turn the television on because something was happening that morning in the tower. She was looking

9/11 20 YEARS LATER

8 Bill Miller What Is Your Personal Experience With 9/11: I was the training chief for the Fry Fire District that day and just finished a game of racquetball when there was a small crowd gathering around the television at the club. Everyone was silently listening to the news reporting that an explosion just occurred at one of the Twin Towers. At that time no one was really sure what was happening. I just remember that I hurried to get ready for work and headed to our main fire station. When I arrived shift change was taken place and no one was leaving. The guys were all huddled around the TV. We all just kept watching the events unfold around both towers. Then images of the planes hitting both towers were being shown. None of us could believe what we were seeing and hearing on the news. No one knew what was going on. All the news stations were reporting all kinds of theories. We were glued to the TV. I’ll never forget when one of the firefighters said we need to respond and help them out. They all wanted to send help, but I reminded them that we had to wait for the state to call us first and that didn’t sit ell with the guys at that time. We all started making phone calls to family members about the events and the guys started getting gear ready for the drive if the state called. They didn’t want to accept that sitting around and waiting for the state to call us was the right thing to do. We all then started talking about a possible threat to Fort Huachuca and if we were under attack. It was not only a scary day and sad day at the same time, but the weeks to follow. I am a retired Fry Fire District Fire Chief. What Is One Thing The Community Should Keep In Mind: Our nation tends to forget the many sacrifices that our military, police, fire and emergency medical professionals do every day. When you see one of them, thank them for their service. Are You Seeing Any Ramifications To This Day: I believe that our nation is still vulnerable from domestic and foreign threats.

SEPTEMBER 2021 • HERALD/REVIEW

Amy McCormick What Is Your Personal Experience With 9/11: My experience of that day began in an auditory way, from which fragments of the truth gradually emerged and coalesced. As I rolled out my gate at around 7 a.m. with my habitual tuning to the car radio for the morning news, I was surprised to find KUAT had not yet made its (then) usual switch between the American and BBC bulletins. Gradually I became aware that I was hearing reports of the crash of a plane into one of the towers of the World Trade Center. How bizarre, I thought; what a tragedy that some small craft flew into the building how is that even possible? I tried to imagine the scenario. Some sightseer gone wrong? A medical emergency? They talked of parts of the building collapsing. Just how much damage had the little plane done? I hoped there weren’t too many people on board besides the pilot. Over the course of the next two hours, as I stubbornly remained in a long, barely crawling line of traffic trying to reach my school workplace on Fort Huachuca, I learned much more, with the details becoming increasingly clear and horrific, and my own efforts to deny the extent of the depravity faltering as time passed. They couldn’t mean a full-sized passenger aircraft, surely? That would have to be deliberate, and no one could be so malignantly evil. What purpose would it serve? This new talk about an explosion near the Pentagon had to be hysteria; people were just panicking over nonevents. As the persistent line of vehicles crept toward the main gate of the fort, reality

Rita Spano

Larry Kordosky What Is Your Personal Experience With 9/11: I was stationed at the Army National Guard Bureau Readiness Center. I was off site when the attacks started and had to go into Arlington/Washington, D.C. while everyone was leaving and the highway was empty. (Note: the Herald did an in-depth interview with me on the 10-year anniversary.) What Is One Thing The Community Should Keep In Mind: Families of military and DoD civilians should have a plan if they don’t know what the status of loved ones are following a terrorist attack or natural disaster. I could not contact my wife for 72 hours and we didn’t have a plan. Are You Seeing Any Ramifications To This Day: A visit to Washington, D.C. now is not the same since 9/11. Much of the beauty and historical references are now hidden from the public by Jersey barriers and fences.

Fred Birner

What Is Your Personal Experience With 9/11: Was in Brooklyn at the time, and saw the second plane fly into the tower with my own eyes. Was on one of the first planes to fly out of NY that Saturday when the airport opened up. Took 24 hours to get back to AZ. Been there many times but this was the first time I saw New York shut down completely. Born in Sierra Vista in 1963 and raised in Sierra Vista.

became undeniable and I wanted only to reach my school and my students, to be where I was needed. Of course, when I finally got to the gate, I was turned away as nonessential personnel, with the guard saying the schools would be closed anyway. I knew better. Both students -- especially those living on post -- and some staff would have arrived before the news came. Forced to head home, the first thing I did was whip into my parents’ driveway and rush inside to give each a hug, desperate to let them know how much I loved them. They were watching the television, and at last I had the opportunity to see what I had only been hearing about for hours. I recall the first thing I glimpsed was footage of the collapse of one of the towers. It was too overwhelming to watch. I don’t remember whether I finished the journey to my own house or called from their kitchen, but my next step was to phone the school to explain how I had tried to get to work but could not. In what I have always seen as a mark of the chaos and improvisation of that day and the ones that followed, the call was answered by the Title I reading assistant, who lived on post and was manning the office with our sign language interpreter. Nearly all the staff were in the same situation as I, but yes, there were, of course, students in the schools. I found later that the last at our site wasn’t collected until after 1 p.m. I spent the rest of the day in my own home unable to concentrate, unable to sit down to any task or distraction, unwilling to look at the tragedy on my sole television channel for more than short increments of time, and trying to grasp the enormity of the evil we were living

What Is Your Personal Experience With 9/11: I was living in Manhattan on 9/11 and I was scheduled to report for jury duty that morning at a courthouse in lower Manhattan. But I had received a notice the day before to report on Sept. 12 instead. Otherwise I would have been getting off a bus right at Ground Zero during the attack. So as the second tower was falling I was walking to work — people were pouring out of subways confused and terrified. The community center where I worked was kept open so people could come in for information and parents could drop off their children while they went to search for missing loved ones. I vividly remember one terrified little boy whose mom was a first responder down at the scene. For days after, we all collected supplies and bottled water for the Ground Zero workers and we cried and hugged each other as we looked at the photos of the missing posted all over the city. And I still get chills at the song “America the Beautiful,” which people seemed to be singing all over the city. What Is One Thing The Community Should Keep In Mind: We were all Americans first that day — frightened but working together to help each other. We cared about each other and our country. We didn’t add to the violence and terror, we helped. Those feelings of caring and helping seemed to come naturally back then. Where have they gone?

through. I remember thinking of those blessed not to see this day because they had died before the events occurred. Never again would I be able to live in a world where I naively believed humanity had become too “civilized” to do the things that were done on 9/11. In the days that followed, difficult as it was to get to work (many of us parked off post, walked through the gate to the Thrift Shop parking lot, and were bused to our school), I felt more dedicated to my work than ever. Without all of the staff being able to arrive in a timely manner for classes to begin, I spent my mornings supervising children in my library. Teachers have sometimes been called “glorified babysitters” but I didn’t mind “babysitting” at all, even watching sixthgraders insensitively trying to process what they were living through by playing at “plane crashes” among the book stacks. I knew that our students’ parents, with their military membership or connections, were facing a new mission unlike anything before, and that they needed the assurance their children would be safe and looked after while their focus was directed to the new war on terror. In the only way we could, we were giving them that assurance. I knew that our students - some of whom were touched directly with the loss of extended family in the Pentagon -- needed the closest thing to “normality” we could offer. I knew that I couldn’t change anything that had happened or was happening around me, but that as a teacher/librarian of the Fort Huachuca Accommodation Schools, I was genuinely needed then for much more than educating our students. That was my 9/11.


SSVEC Employees share their stories

Danna Judd

Manny Gonzales

On January 2003, while employed at Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative, I was mobilized in support of combat operations Operation Iraqi Freedom. I left my job and life in Willcox behind to serve as the company gunnery srgeant for Bulk Fuel Company A. We set up massive fueling stations and were responsible for the security of one half of our battalion’s perimeter in Camp Viper Iraq. Our battalion made history doing its part in fueling the war and we received the Presidential Unit Citation. The message is: Over the course of history, our reserve force has been called in to augment our active-duty forces. Without the support from SSVEC, which included holding my job and then providing retraining or allowing me to reintegrate into the civilian world and my job requirements, things could have been different. For me personally, after serving on active duty and now at 13 years of service at SSVEC, and especially after 9/11, I, like thousands of others, wanted to do my part and serve this great nation. I was mobilized on two other

occasions, Security Operations in Djibouti, Africa, and the war in Afghanistan. Once again, I left my civilian life to serve my country supported by many people including SSVEC. Semper Fidelis, Sgt. Maj. Manuel J. Gonzales (Ret)

Steve Garate Stationed in Yongsan Army Base in Seoul, South Korea, Cpl. Steve Garate was about as far away as anyone when the tragic events on Sept. 11 happened. Yet, like everyone serving on active duty in the military, he was closer than most. “I had just gone to bed and the downstairs neighbor suddenly started banging on my door,” Garate said. “We turned on the television and when the second plane hit the second tower, we knew it wasn’t an accident.” Garate, the safety and training manager at Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative, quickly put on his uniform and prepared his “A & B go bags.” “I just waited for the phone call,” he said. “I knew we were going to be called into the Operations Center and about 45 minutes later, the phone rang.” Though not directly involved in the military deployment to Afghanistan, which began in October 2001, Garate said life changed dramatically at the Hanam Village in the U.S. military base in Seoul. “At the Operations Center we were briefed on the events and everyone there, including myself, expressed a commitment to do whatever was asked. It’s why we signed up to begin with,” he said. Lifestyle changes were immediate. Soldiers at the post were no longer allowed to leave post except for official duties and in addition to eight-hour days on duty, those wearing the uniform were ordered to serve four to eight additional hours on guard duty patrolling the perimeter of the base and the civilian housing areas. “Nobody had a problem with it. We all wanted to do our part and at that time we weren’t completely sure what we were up against,” Garate said. Years later, after he left military service, Garate came to Fort Huachuca and started work as a contractor, teaching soldiers interrogation techniques. As part of that work, he was part of a four-man team tasked with evaluating intelligence gathering in the field by the military. When that contract ended and long after he returned from Iraq, Garate joined SSVEC in 2019 as its safety and training manager.

SEPTEMBER, 2021 • HERALD/REVIEW

Danna Judd, Customer Service Supervisor at Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative, was working at the American Airlines office in Tucson when the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack happened. “By far, the most devastating and lifechanging days of my life,” she said when remembering the attack and the week that followed. Judd worked with Executive Platinum Club members, who were frequent airline fliers that racked up more than 100,000 miles each year. The exclusive group required assistance to make travel arrangements around the world, usually for business meetings. After working until midnight on Sept. 10, Danna was awakened by her sister at 5:30 the next morning at her Tucson home and told to turn on the television. She knew immediately that she had to return to work. “We were getting flooded with calls,” she recalled. “It was almost suffocating the morning of the event to speak with panicking family members who were trying to find loved ones and demanding that we tell them where they were.” Unfortunately, flight manifests were unavailable, and attendants had no idea which passengers were on which planes or the status of flights in the air at the time of the attack. “We were totally helpless,” Danna said. “Until all airplanes were safely on the ground that day, we were glued to CNN hoping we had seen the last of the planes falling out of the sky.” Those working the Executive Platinum desk were required to work overtime on Sept. 11, and in the days after the attack. Judd said numerous passengers were trying to return home or get ahold of loved ones. “The skies were closed, rental cars were all taken, cell phones were not working in the New York City area,” she said. Judd worked for 20 years at the Tucson office of American Airlines, starting at 19 years old and working her way up to the Executive Platinum Club Member help desk. Despite her years of experience, the events during 9/11 were well beyond anything she or her coworkers had been trained to handle. “It was complete and total chaos that was handled as smoothly as possible,” she said. “Never had I wanted a situation to go away more than that day and the days to follow. That’s the only way to describe how I felt that day. “

Daniel Myers, Mechanic III at Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative, was stationed halfway around the world when planes hit the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Myers was in the Army, stationed at Camp Carroll in South Korea. “Me and my family were living in quarters at Camp George,’ Myers said. “My wife was watching the news on a Korean television station, and she woke me up, telling me I had to see what was happening.” Myers gathered his family and told them that at any moment he expected the phone to ring. He proceeded to get up, gather his gear and prepare for instructions. “It didn’t take long for that phone to ring, I got all my stuff together and headed for Camp Carroll. The drive usually took 20 to 30 minutes but that morning it took almost two hours because the traffic was extremely bad.”

mong the more indelible images to emerge on September 11, 2001 was the sight of two planes crashing into the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center. Still photos and video footage of those planes flying into the Twin Towers were the first images of the attacks many Americans saw, and no one who watched events unfold that morning will ever forget those images. Though both the North and South Towers fell on that day, today the site where each tower once stood is a serene retreat in the bustling lower Manhattan neighborhood that was shaken to its core on the day of the attacks. The 9/11 Memorial was designed by architect Michael Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker. The 9/11 Memorial and Museum notes that Arad and Walker’s proposal was chosen in a design competition that featured 5,201 submissions from 63 countries. The 9/11 Memorial is located on the western side of the former World Trade Center where the Twin Towers once stood. Two enormous reflecting pools are part of the Memorial Plaza, which is where the

The Flight 93 National Memorial includes the Tower of Voices, a 93-foot-tall musical instrument that holds 40 wind chimes, one to represent each of the 40 passengers and crew members who perished in the crash. A live webcam of the Tower of Voices can be viewed at https://www. flight93friends.org/plan-yourvisit/webcams. Visitors to the Flight 93 National Memorial also can visit the Memorial Plaza. The plaza features the Wall of Names, which is made up of 40 white polished marble stones inscribed with the names of the passengers and crew who were aboard Flight 93 on 9/11. Visitors can walk along the Memorial Plaza and view the impact site, including a grove of eastern hemlock trees that were damaged by the crash. A gap in the tree line is still visible and serves as a lasting “scar” of the crash. More information is available at https://www.nps.gov/flni/ planyourvisit/index.htm.

The Pentagon Memorial

A

t 9:37 a.m. on September 11, 2001, five hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia. All 53 passengers and six crew members perished in the crash, and an additional 125 military and civilian personnel on the ground were killed in the fire caused by the crash. The hijacking of Flight 77 was part of the broader attack on 9/11, which remains the deadliest terrorist attack in world history. The Pentagon Memorial was created to honor the 184 people whose lives were lost at the Pentagon on 9/11, as well as their families and all those who sacrifice to protect and preserve the freedom of Americans. The design of the Pentagon Memorial was developed by architects Julie Beckman and Keith Kaseman. Their design was chosen from 1,100 submissions. The Pentagon Memorial sits on two acres of land just outside where Flight 77 struck the building. The memorial includes 184 benches that are dedicated to each of the victims. The benches are organized in a timeline of their ages, stretching from the youngest victim, 3-year- Dana Falkenberg, to the oldest, 71-yearold John Yamnicky. Each bench is

engraved with a victim’s name and arches over a shallow reflecting pool of water, lit from below. The benches for the passengers who were aboard the plane at the time of the crash are positioned so visitors will face the sky when reading the victim’s names. The benches dedicated to the victims who were inside the building are positioned so their names and the Pentagon are in the same view. A curved wall known as the Age Wall also is a significant part of the memorial. The wall increases in height from 3 inches to 71 inches to represent the ages of the victims. Eighty-five paperbark maple trees were clustered throughout the memorial, and these trees feature foliage that changes to orange and red each fall. The trees will eventually grow to 30 feet, providing a canopy of shade over the memorial. The Pentagon Memorial is free and open seven days a week yearround, though visitors are urged to contact the Memorial in advance due to potential restrictions or closures related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

SEPTEMBER, 2021 • HERALD/REVIEW

t 10:03 a.m. on September 11, 2001, the last of four planes that were hijacked earlier that morning crashed into a field near the town of Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The people behind the 9/11 attacks later claimed the hijackers who commandeered the plane intended to crash it into the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., but passengers and crew stormed the cockpit, prompting the hijackers to crash the plane into the field. The efforts of passengers and crew onboard Flight 93 were nothing short of heroic. Though everyone aboard the flight perished in the crash, the attack on the U.S. Capitol was thwarted, saving untold number of lives. All passengers and crew on board Flight 93 were awarded a Congressional Gold Medal on September 11, 2014. The Flight 93 National Memorial is located in Stonycreek Township in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, roughly two miles north of Shanksville. The memorial was opened to family members of the victims on September 10, 2015, and is now open to the public seven days a week, 365 days a year from sunrise to sunset, though visitors are urged to contact the Memorial in advance due to potential restrictions or closures related to

North and South Towers once stood. The pools feature the two largest man-made waterfalls in North America. Around the edges of the pools, the names of people who were killed in the 9/11 attacks in New York, the Pentagon, on Flight 93, and in the 1993 bombing at the World Trade Center are etched in bronze. In recognition of the crash sites, 400 swamp white oak trees were selected from nurseries located in New York, Pennsylvania and near Washington, D.C. These trees are located throughout the Memorial Plaza, providing a peaceful respite separate from the surrounding city. The Memorial Plaza also includes one Callery pear tree. That tree was discovered at Ground Zero weeks after the attacks and it was severely damaged. The tree, now known as the Survivor Tree, was nursed back to health by members of the New York City Parks and Recreation Department and returned to the World Trade Center site in 2010, where it stands as a symbol of resilience and perseverance. The 9/11 Memorial is free and open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. More information can be found at www.911memorial.org.
