Hard to believe it was 18 years ago when we were viciously attacked on our own soil. By the time the smoke cleared, 8 EMT's, 60 police, 343 firefighters and 2997 citizens lost their lives. We were all touched by that moment in history. It was also the birth of the Flakes 189th Redneck Battalion. With over 3500 members, bumper stickers and T-shirts, we were able to resurrect patriotism and love for the country that had waned over the years. I still love my country and I'm proud that we have the men and women that serve it every day. May God bless you and your families.
