‘I’ll never forget’: NHP trooper recalls how 9/11 inspired him to enlist in Air Force
LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Friday, September 11, 2020, marks 19 years since the worst act of terrorism ever on U.S. soil took place.
Almost two decades after the attacks, Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Jason Buratczuk remembers the day like it was yesterday.
Buratczuk was working at a small airline in Massachusetts, going through his daily work routine.
Until he got a call from his boss telling him to turn on the TV.
“As soon as I turned on the TV, I saw the plane hit,” Buratczuk recalled.
American Airlines Flight 11 had crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City.
