Adjusting to a New Reality
“We landed and there were all sorts of people with, with automatic weapons and SWAT gear surrounding us, surrounding the helicopters, guarding the Members when we were on the steps . . . there was just, there was a real feeling–it was dusk, you could see the smoke coming out of the Pentagon. There was a real feeling of, ‘Boy, this is something new and different that we’ve never been through before.’”
