Some back fill as to why and where I was on 9/11/2001.
I was a Ship Navigator stationed aboard a US Navy ship in San Diego. I'll always remember for a fact that it was a Tuesday morning because the Navy
just changed to Tuesday morning underway from the usual Monday morning. But this underway was different, see normally Ships liberty expires in-port US
at 0500-0600 on the day of underway, but for some strange reason, which no one at the time would tell us, the entire ships crew had to be aboard at
Midnight the night before our scheduled 0900 underway.
So as I woke that Tuesday morning on board my Ship, I went to eat breakfast. I was sitting down and watching the video of the hole in the WTC on the
TV in the mess-room and thinking, that is not an accident! Just then I saw the second plane hit, I jumped up and ran to the Quarterdeck and told the
Officer of the Deck to set the Sea and Anchor detail as the US, mainly NYC, was under attack and we had to get underway quickly. We stayed underway
for 2 weeks guarding the west coast airspace.
It didn't dawn on me at the time, but looking back I realized we were not the only ship that was getting underway that day, The whole waterfront was
unexpectedly getting ready to get underway that day. Why?
The more I looked into the reasons, the scarier it seemed. To me, somebody knew something more than the OS is putting out!
