Glad to hear about WaveRunner! I was worrying about him.

I am hear. A little shaken but none the less I made it home in 6 hours. Had to evacuate the building I work in which is, by the way, the buiding that houses the oil and precious metals markets.

GoatBoy, What part of western NY are you from? If you are leaving for NYC can you give me the details, I might want to join you.

I’m highly pissed off, but my wife and I are physically well. We live in lower Westchester Co., so we got off light, but our hearts and prayers go out to all the victims. God bless America.

Good to hear that FrankSquid and waverunner is ok. How about fattym4? I know he was in the city earlier and was getting out, but did he make it? Any posts after 2?
Link Posted: 9/11/2001 7:41:27 PM EDT
Am happy to hear that word came in about Waverunner and that he's okay. Was thinking of both him and my daughter today. Finally got through to my girl this evening (I'm in the NW) and it turns out that she was on her way into Manhattan via the Brooklyn Bridge on business when the second tower came down. Gave thanks that she's safe. W

Anyone hear from Oneshot1kill?

Watching this thread closely, knowing that if members of the NYC area in EMS/PD and Firefighting are there they are still active in the disaster area. If they contact anybody, be ready for their stories; their grief; their frustrations. Been involved in several major incidents, not on a scale like we've been seeing in NYC but I've seen some familiar looks in the eyes of the rescueworkers. Those eyes alone are enough to choke me.

He said that he is concerned about one of the guys called wave runner Ray and Shaggie from New York, he asked if I could find out if they are heard from yet. Thank you and we pray that everyone here is safe.

Amanda - I'm glad to hear he's ok. One the first page of this thread (click on the "1" at the top of the page), I was asking if anyone had heard from him, and I sent him an email last night to make sure he was ok. Good to hear he's ok. I pray his unaccounted for family and friends made it out ok.

Amanda, I am relieved Dom is okay. Hang in there girl. Dominick's family and all NY'ers are in our prayers and thoughts these last couple of days. If you ever have questions or want to talk we are here for you. Take care. God Bless you and yours

Waverunner, Now you understand what I said to you once before, about that you are our hero in a time like this. There is not a damn negative thing we can say about you. Thank you for all you did.

I saw an interview on ABCNEWS yesterday of a man who was on the 59th floor of WTC 1 and walked out after the plane hit. He said that as he and everyone else in the building was running out, the [b]HEROES[/B] of the FDNY and NYPD were running in. I'm speechless in admiration for these folks.

Just checking in to see how everyone is. Glad to see a "sign-in" sheet. I count myself as doubly fortunate, in being able to get my wife (and myself) out safely. It was harrowing to be in midst of all that gypsum and seeing all the people wandering. I only pray for all those people out there searching and waiting for "a call" from a loved one. I have several friends that are Missing. And I know of several LEOs that were out working, the one that I'm concerned about works in the 1st pct (by the WTC) and is always one to volunteer for the hazardous tasks. I can't bring myself to finish my "re-read" of Debt of Honor. I was just pages from completing it on my MetroNorth Ride "in" that same morning, and I haven't been able to touch it since.....

GoatBoy, Thanks for thumb tacking. All you "yorkers" have been in our thoughts and prayers...especially you LEO types. ( I too am glad to hear about Waverunner ) I have relatives in the state, but not near NYC. This has touched ALL of our lifes!!!

Anyone heard from Ronin45(john)? I emailed him the other day wishing him the best and figured he would be in the middle of it all down there. Have not heard back yet. [beer] God bless everyone in the trenches!

I saw Ronin on the morning of the crash, about 1/2 hour after the first plane hit......Hope he's ok!!?? And yes, I think I have aged about 10 years in the past 4 days. My eyes will never look at anything the same way. I dont know if I will ever smile again. The things I have seen at ground zero are truly horrific. Cameras cant even begin to paint the picture of what happened there. I need to goto sleep, I have slept about 7 or 8 hours total in the past 4 nights. Last night I didnt sleep at all, not one minute...how could I? I have to be back at work now about 3 hours and I havent slept yet, every day has been a 20-22 hour day.....God Bless All who died...... This just cant be put into words, it cant.

Goatboy,And all other well wishers, My cousin Eric has been found and is doing well. He was two blocks away fom ground zero. All he remembers is running and being hit by a fast moving wall of dust ,debris, and chunks of the WTC. The dust is what hurt him most. He is an asthmatic and it choked him down hard after wards. After a few transfers between hospitals and looking Wed, Thurs, and part of Fri, we found him. Broken leg, broken wrist,still breathing hard, and a whole bunch of cuts and bruises. He would like me to express his most heartfelt thanks to all the boys in blue and the volunteers that have been enduring this tragedy days after. His words, and I quote, "These are men and women of the utmost resolve, Without a care for themselves rushed in to save all those people.And they are still there trying to help find other survivors. They are heroes in the very truest sense of the word" To the rescue workers,Thank you for rescuing one of my family.My words cannot express how I feel at the moment. I am happy my cousin is alive, yet still feel angered at the whole incident.And I cannot express my sympathy the familys of those unfortunate souls who were lost in this senseless act of cowardice and violence. I just hope we make these people and anyone associated with them pay dearly.And I have to say, in the eyes of anyone who was/is there now, is a stare that literally chills you. People wont be the same.But we all will persevere. God bless you and yours, And God bless the USA!Ass kickin time is near. Synweap223 Out!

Link Posted: 9/15/2001 6:42:32 AM EDT
My heartfelt sorrow to all the families on the "AR Team" or otherwise who have lost friends and loved ones. Also my genuine thanks to all those who risk their lives towards helping in the rescue efforts. I am the US born & bred product of immigrant parents who came to the US (circa 1962)to acquire the American Dream - My family knows the value of freedom and the price that must be paid to keep that freedom from those who would rather see us a "Subjects" rather than "Citizens." God Bless this country and the people that make up AMERICA. Lets be level headed at home in this difficult time as tough as that may be right now. BTW: "Hey A**holes from afar that attacked the U.S.A. BEHOLD THE RATH OF OUR ANGER AND RETRIBUTION FOR NO GOD CAN SAVE YOU FROM THE FATE YOU HAVE BROUGHT UPON YOURSELVES. In other words "SAHIB" you done "F@#*'d UP REAL BAD THIS TIME! Watch your "6" Specwar

I have'nt been able to reach John ( Ronin45 ) but I heard he's ok . The situation here is very tense , NYC is now an armed camp , there are many check points , all river crossings and airports are on the highest alert and the Navy has the aircraft carrier Gearge Washington just outside the harbor with a Marine amphibious group at the ready . In addition there are E2C Hawkeyes and F-14's and FA-18's flying CAP over the city. Nothing will ever be the same again, God Bless America
