                    I don't normally watch TV. I did start scanning the channels though.
                    Geraldo on Fox was the first to announce that OBL was killed. I had
                    to scan the other news channels for another couple of minutes before
                    they were making the same claims. Finally, later than first reported,
                    Obama made the official proclamation that OBL is dead! It couldn't
                    have happened to a more deserving scumbad.

Most of that day I was with the 1st PCT doing security. The next day I was on the Brooklyn Bridge securing that area and the next two days I was down on Ground Zero. I still have my red OEM badge..

                        I will never forget those days..

                        Either way.. I feel better right now.. Between the good auction for the lady MARCH helped and this.. I feel good... Now all we need is for VCFE to do well and all will be good..

                          I have old friends from high school on NYPD then. One of them didn't come home. We have a street named for him back home.
