Thank you for posting this video. My ship, TAHOMA, reached the Verazano Narrows at midnight on September 11th. It was a nightmarish scene to see lower Manhattan only lit by the burning rubble of the towers. Over the next six weeks that I spent in New York Harbor, I was consistently humbled by the heroism and decency of the “ordinary” people of New York who always stepped forward to work themselves to the bone in order to help those in need. On the morning of the 12th, the only planes in the sky were F-18s provided combat air patrol and on the water was the Coast Guard, and any New Yorker, with a boat, who wanted to help their city get to the 13th and then 14th.
Thank you again.
Your friend, Sherman
Ordinary people… doing extraordinary things.
Dammit, Cale, now I’ve got some dust in my eye or something.
