OUR SEPT 11 STORY
By Bing Howard
When terrorists attacked America, we were one of four military families transitioning to the Middle East who got separated. This is our story...
The bombing of USS Cole on October 12, 2000 affected military family travel to most countries in the Middle East like Bahrain, Qatar, and Dubai. Service members were stationed in many places without their families for a long time.
After three years in Japan, my husband's new set of orders was for two years in Bahrain. He was going through C-12 flight school in Nevada when we heard that family restrictions in Bahrain were lifted, we were travelling with him at that time to visit relatives in the US. We were excited because we could all be together in Bahrain! To fulfill his orders, my husband flew to Bahrain on August 30, 2001.
Meanwhile, I and my boys rushed back to Japan to pack and ship all our household goods. On September 7, we bid farewell to our dear friends in Japan and flew to San Francisco. In those days, military families in Asia could not move to the Middle East via foreign airlines and foreign soil, it was supposed to ensure our safety. We had to fly on a US carrier over US soil and eventually make our way around the world to Bahrain.
We picked San Francisco as our port of entry since my father lived there and we could visit for a few days. Incidentally, travel arrangements made for us by the Navy to fly out of San Franscisco was on September 11th because the next safe flight we could catch from London to Bahrain was only available on September 12th.
Early on September 11th, we were ready to go to the airport, our United Airlines flight was leaving at 9:00 am. My husband frantically called from Bahrain telling me to get to the airport as fast as we could. By then all flights were cancelled! The airport, major roads, and government buildings were already shut down. America was in a state of emergency! We were shocked by the images we were seeing on TV!
We were stuck for two weeks in San Francisco, then three weeks in London....
