September 11, 2001 seems so long ago and at the same time feels like yesterday as our country still faces the effects of the tragic day.
Across the country, ceremonies were held to honor and remember those fallen on September 11, and Michigan Tech’s ROTC cadets took time Thursday morning to reflect on their service.
“I wanted to protect my country and stop that from ever happening again, if that was in my power to assist in the effort to protect our country,” said Air Force ROTC Cadet Major Alexa Trafelet.
“I think it keeps you focused. It reminds you of why you go out there and serve; it’s to make sure that civilians and innocent people don’t die, and we’re here to protect them,” added Army ROTC Cadet Matthew Pscheid.
