I was in New York City this weekend for a symposium, and had a little free time.

Anyway, I ended up going to the Statue of Liberty and to ground zero at the WTC site.

Both of these places reminded me, and even further solidified, why I am joining the Corps.

I encourage everyone else to get out to historical sites and cemetaries and stuff near you, it just gives a little more perspective.

i remember that the Christmas after 9/11 happened, i was in New Jersey to visit family. we took a drive to the town next to theirs (very close to NY), and walked up this sidewalk that had a memorial and pictures of all those who had been killed in the attacks (from that town). i remember my mom and aunt crying. i know i was a little young, but i remember telling myself i couldn't wait to get payback for this... i'm right there with you man.
