Hello all ,
With the 10th Anniversary arriving soon , many of the regular roadfooders know I was working on Sept 11th , 2001 as a police officer in Manhattan . Pretty historic and significant I believe .
I was at Stewart Airport in NY , well a few miles away on the route , when the 52 ex hostages arrived back on US soil in Jan 1981 , and covered the 1 yr reunion for my high school paper the next yr meeting these heros in person .
Met the Pope on his last visit to NY ,well he stopped in front of our barricade , but I felt the positive vibes and he did acknowledge my presence
As far as sporting events I’ve been to a Super Bowl , Daytona 500 , World Series .
Sure I can think of a few more .
Have met presidents , governors , senators , through work
Good thread here
