I mean that was it was my. I think one of the most amazing thing so at about iran wars what we didn't expect iran to intervene and try and destabilize iraq. As much as it did well. what were you expecting. I mean this was a mistake. Made i also think there was a fundamental confusion about what the warnings were i. Don rumsfeld in the pentagon were quite happily have knocked out. Saddam hussein regarding unfinished business from the first gulf war installed on chalabi as the rule of iraq. Maybe that would have been kind of a democratic election to endorse him but we would have been sorry. It's going to acquit. It's democratic election. And that would have been remade iraq. And then obviously there were always. He wished to stay and try and foster full on democratic society. And you had this constant confusion about what the in both afghanistan iraq of confusion about the war aims often think about afghanistan if i as he so any was bin laden had been caught into aboard right at the.

"Fluid and we pray for him. His name is billy kelly. He was with the nypd for many years. Two of his five children have joined the us military in his honor. And we pray for people like this. There are more people today that are sick and or have died from nine. Eleven related toxic cancer and other diseases than were killed by the terrorists. Nine eleven so The victims continue. I mean people continue to die from this that and also the. Ptsd is terrible in the sense. That i can tell you. I feel like there's a therapy session but You know when i hear fire trucks or ems or ambulances or i smell smoke or It brings me right back. It's like it's happening right drill for you. Basically the trigger. Even though it's twenty years later. Or if i hear a loud boom or allowed side i don't think any american will ever fly again without thinking about what happened on flight. Ninety three i'll be in shanksville over the weekend for the nine eleven ceremonies And i think that we need to think about those forty souls. They knew what their fate was and they were americans and they fought back and they're still trying to identify the remains of people in fact In the last couple of months. I think they've identified two more people and their remains. It's just mind boggling to me that that continues. It is mind boggling. There is a morgue in the basement of the nine eleven memorial in new york city and is guarded by police officer around the clock and as the dna testing gets more advanced and more advanced. They continue to run the ashes of people and bone fragments. That have to this day. Twenty years later never been identified because no one survived above the crash floors and many of those souls have never ever been identified. You know ashes to ashes dust dust. There were people. I was saying this to my husband just last night that there were people that had never been to new york before that were at a breakfast at windows on the world on the hundred and tenth floor. That never made it out alive. And i've been up there to eat. I mean i know how far up it is and gosh. If you get up a s you know caught up. They are i. I can only imagine what kind of fear was going through these people's bodies and minds. It's beyond anything that anyone could imagine. But i try to think about the firefighters that successfully got so many people out. That wouldn't have made it There were fire wardens every day civilians on every floor where you would be in charge if you were in the ninety three bombing there were four ways for exits to get down to the sky lobby and then from the sky lobby the forty something floor down to the ground but it was a very complicated building and complex to get out but the fire wardens on each floor. Many of them got every single civilian out. Evacuating down all those steps. And so i choose to think of the positive and the other positive memory i lived in manhattan at the time on the upper east side of the nineteenth precinct and the police fire house are next to each other and i remember all the people little kids in my building. That didn't know what to do and made cookies and cakes and pastries for the firemen and the policemen going back to each precinct and seeing how many people had died three hundred and forty three firefighters and the police officers that passed away. People wanted to do something. They brought towels. They brought gifts. Kids made arts and crafts. Just a feeling of just to say. Thank you and i think that going forward now that it's been twenty years. It's no less painful. If you've lost a loved one and we're going to have the twenty first anniversary and the twenty second and the twenty third. Just just say thank you to the people that are in law enforcement..

"Since that tragic day here in america. I remember My husband and i and our family were flying out of new york city the weekend before and My husband said to me turn around and look. There are the twin towers. And it's just so eerie as i think about that day when we were flying out there where if we had been flying home the next weekend you know We could have been on one of those planes to help. Remember what it was like that day. We spoke with robin williams ski. She was a reporter in new york city for the associated. Press radio network at the time and We've split up the interview into several parts throughout the morning because it was so good and So compelling so here's part one at that interview that i did with robin so you will working as a reporter for the ap radio network in new york city at the time This happened. Can you bring us back to that day. Twenty years ago. Oh well it. It's such a rough memory. I was in route to the new york stock exchange for ap radio where i had been on nine ten to cover the volatile market. And i was home about to leave in my apartment in manhattan and my tv. Set flickered. i was watching the. Abc station went over to nbc. And they were saying that news anchor was saying that there was a plane in the building in the world trade center. And you could see the smoke billowing. So i called back the ap. And i'm the person answers the phone. I don't even identify myself. I just say do you see this and the voice on the other and says yes go live and get down there and so we all know the events of nine eleven but i will tell you that standing underneath the building thinking that you know a plane was in the terrorists use planes as missiles into the building and i kept seeing things going out of the building thinking that it was furniture. Going out the window you know playing desk and furniture out. It wasn't until way later. On that i understood that those were people going out the window that that was their best hope because the fires were raging. And that's image that i'll never get out of my mind and then later on both buildings are on fire and i'm thinking myself how in the world of the firefighter is going to get up there to put this out and i had been in the ninety three world trade center bombing eight years prior and i'm thinking of all the people i know in there and you know. The governor's office and and cantor fitzgerald and people. I grew up with a new jersey in high school that worked in the building. And i'm thinking how are they gonna put this out. And i'm on the pay phone. Yeah i'm kind of dating myself here. Twenty on and i hear people screaming. Oh my god. Oh my god it. And i'm thinking what could be worse than than the twin towers on fire. And i step back and i peer around the payphone and the south tower is collapsing in slow motion and people are screaming and police. Officers are screaming. You know peak the f. o. g. Cfo you know. I'm kind of doing an an acronym. Here so i don't curse but if not for the police and first responders screaming for people to get away from the area So many more lives would have been lost. So did you have to basically run for your life from that payphone. At that moment. I did and you know people didn't know where to go. There was a period of time. Where i was hiding out in a basement in like a freezer area of a restaurant with all these strangers and we had a tv on. And i didn't know what to think or where to go. Do you go to central park. You get there some kind of way you go up to the united nations. Is that going to be a target. Do you go to the empire. State building is that going to be a target and we just didn't know and then we started hearing reports about other planes and the pentagon i didn't learn about the sank phil situation flight. Seventy seven t Flight seventy seven was in the pentagon. I didn't Hear about flight. Ninety three and shanksville until way later on in the day. 'cause all the cell phone service was out. How did you initially get to the site. Mean you take a cab and when you got there did you see any of the the second plane hit at all. I drove down there. And when i got down town from my apartment Because i have pressed place on my car and I just ditched my car. Somewhere and i ended up evacuating on foot and getting my car way later on and know it was covered with all the toxic dust. But you know the thing is all the people that perished in their over three thousand innocent americans and you know a nine twelve. We weren't black and white democrat republican. We were just americans and the terrorists took out that building not because of how beautiful it was glass. The metal the steal it it was a symbol. It was a symbol of american. Might of american strength. And that's why it never stopped being a target for eight years so the terrorists radical islam. Jihadist they play the long game. They're not into the news cycle of the west of the twitter verse forty characters. They wait us out of some bin laden. The top terrorists planned and plotted from cave for eight long years and we were sleep at the wheel. And that's when we went into afghanistan and now we're out of afghanistan. Do you fear this could happen again. Oh absolutely but in a way that will be way worse. Something that we've never thought of. And i'm kind of reminded of tom. Kaine the former governor of new jersey who was involved in the nine eleven report in the aftermath when congress looked at it in its entirety and the main nugget because i remember him saying and the news conference is that nine eleven was the failure of the american imagination. And it's a very powerful statement about that. Nine eleven was the failure of the american imagination. Yes in nineteen ninety-three the radical islamic terrorists. Put the bomb in the b. Two garage with the hope of toppling. The towers it didn't work and so they came up with this plan to hijack aircraft and to use them as missiles to attack it from a different way. They are always ten steps ahead of us. Have you suffered Health issues because you said you were covered in ash down there right. Yeah i'm in the nine eleven world trade center program twenty years later i have friends Who had even more exposure than i did who have cancers or have since passed away. I have a friend of here in the atlanta georgia. Area retired new york city policeman who has terminal cancer as we speak He had skin cancer. He was his job was at the staten island landfill to go through debris he was with the forensics unit looking for bones and body parts and he got skin cancer on his forehead that spread to his liver and pancreas and he currently has brain cancer..

"A present danger. There was the enactment of something called the usa patriot act and the nsa was interested in doing more surveillance of phone calls and emails giant questions about life. Liberty and security in. America are in the spotlight. As i've said this program is an important tool in our effort to disrupt terrorist plots a whole host of things that were previously off limits before nine eleven presently. The nation currently stands in the yellow condition in elevated risk. And then. of course. There's the the granddaddy of all of the government's structural changes the creation of the department of homeland security and it had new agencies like tsa several long lines at security people having to repack their suitcases because they have to ditch all liquids with them but additionally psa does that's lesser known and lesser understood. Is that when you go ahead and buy a plane ticket. You're gonna fly from new york to california to go visit. Your great adds twenty four hours before you get on that plane. The computers are checking to see if brad or josh has any suspicious travel patterns. I remember At the nine eleven memorial mass that we had for him A few weeks after nine eleven someone came up to my mother and said i'm alive today because of what your husband did when people kind of they want to know about nine eleven and how i see it I really just tell them that it was a really terrible day and a lot of people were affected poorly but for me like that's the day that i lost my mom and that's what it is more than september eleventh. What was it. Like september tenth. Two thousand one. And what is it like now. On september tenth two thousand twenty one to different countries. We had one expert who had a very interesting way of looking at it. His assessment was the sort of bravado and muscular nature of the american attitude basically was destroyed with the destruction of the twin towers on nine eleven and the last twenty years have basically been america in a creek. Protective crouch defensive scared and and a lot of what our country has done and a lot of what's happened like with law enforcement and the government has in some ways. You know showing us to be scared. Because we're scared of.

Eleventh two thousand and one that's generation of children who have become women and men a generation of lawmakers who have been replaced and a generation of law enforcement who've been trained knowing what the worst case scenario can really look like tomorrow morning families will gather at sites across the country the largest of which will be in new york names of the debt will be read aloud bells will mark the exact moments that planes began blasting into buildings but in some ways is an anniversary to be marked today as well september tenth. Two thousand one marks the last day in american history before a complete paradigm shift spent the last couple of days hearing firsthand accounts of the attacks and their aftermath. I and the series with abc's chief investigative reporter. Josh margolin this morning. One of the leaders of the series nine eleven twenty years later the longest shadow and josh before. We talk about what's changed. Since that day there is one development this week. I feel like we should mention. Is it true that they're still identifying bodies from the world trade center like this week while brad. That's one of the most fascinating things in in looking back at nine. Eleven the legacy of nine eleven years since and that's one of the things that we focused on our series on. Abc news live. Almost half of the victims at the world. Trade center have never been identified the rubble that was the world trade center. Emergency crews have been frantically digging all day. There's just the the terrible science that two enormous buildings collapsed any miniscule remains could have been damaged by the fire by jet fueled by by the force of the collapse of the buildings on. I'm hoping that anyone who got out and they there were a lot that dig it out. We'll see this picture. See his name and call me and let me know they will gonna be evacuated but the phone clicked off and that was the last anybody ever heard from her. There are people out there that that still wants. Answers still want results but interestingly the office of the chief medical examiner in new york city has spent these twenty years still with a small team of people trying to use ever evolving technology to identify remains based on ever smaller fragments. It was a shock. It was a shock. I so just this week. We ended up. Having an announcement of two victims now being identified one of them a woman from the long island she was on the ninety. Four th floor. The north tower thanks to new technology. The dna in some of the remains matched. Dorothy old toothbrush. And the thing is i. I've spoken over these years to a lot of victims families and survivors. How long did you hold onto. Hope for you. Had to step years years years. Yeah they just wanna have something tangible something that says that my husband my son my daughter. My wife might might my father that these people did not just disappear from the face of the earth. It's incredible that we are still discovering literally discovering new things about that day twenty years later can we zoom out a little because you cover law enforcement you cover national security. That's been your beat for so many years when you look back on september tenth of two thousand one. What has changed practically since that day. When you look at america stands now. I have to say brad. There's nothing that hasn't changed the rest of the you or not feeling down all of us. Those planes hit the towers and they hit the pentagon and those heroes on flight. Ninety three fourths the down in pennsylvania and no one realized it in the moment because it was not entirely clear in that very second but at that moment everything about law enforcement change new times the fudd by anxiety and security police officers down there when dog sniffing out cars say right now. Calls have increased tenfold. We saw the growth of things like see something say something which basically deputises all people and all local police departments to be the front lines in the war on terror. Islamic leaders say they had received threats as last week's attacks but they want people to realize that they're not the bad guys cruiser because we're arab-americans budgets for law enforcement exploded washington. Dc for instance has learned. That one has matt team is not nearly enough to cover a city every tau all of a sudden was on the frontlines in the war on terror. Traces of anthrax have been found in five post offices in palm beach county. There are no guarantees that that mail is safe got a vast coalition of people bound by this principle. Either you with us or you were the enemy. Then you have. America declaring war attack neff ghanistan and then two years later attacking iraq. Our coalition is strong. And we're keeping his strong and we're on the hunt. we're chasing them down one by one. So we end up having all number of veterans coming out of war zones. There's always hiring preferences for veterans as there should be in civil service hundred shock so you end up having a mindset among some veterans of the policing in the war zone which is dramatically different than policing in a civilian environment. Here on the home. From the pop. Tear-gas like whoa. He's spoken to a lot of people especially police commissioner in baltimore. Who's dealing with this issue right now. Twenty years later. Let's try to tamper down the militaristic look and mindset and move away from the warrior model into the guardian model where we guardians of our community. Not necessarily warriors of the community when even above the precinct level. Josh i gotta think that federally that the the direction that our country took and our federal agencies took that completely changed as well and that affects. every american doesn't matter who your mayor. Your governor is oh one hundred percent so the fbi turned its focus from being a reactive law enforcement organization in many ways to being a proactive organization whose goal is to stop the next attack before it occurs with my signature. This law will give intelligence and law enforcement officials important new tools.

"At least the theme that i took from the from the book and the power miners is we want to express how we are americans first and we are still serving our community. We want you to see. That won't take the uniform off. That wasn't the end. it was just an chapter closed. I think that the way that we sort of entice. I guess what. I would use the average civilian. Who's curious because the way we started is. Why did you wanna serve especially the one of the questions. That i've gotten so much and i just have to deflect and say enlisted in nineteen ninety nine. I want i wanted to jump out of airplanes automatic weapons blow stuff up and get some money for college. That was my know but so many people like why. Why would you. Why would you enlist in two thousand and seven right right after the you know why would you. Why would you go in and go forward with. Iraq raging in afghanistan. Finally being up speed. Why would you even enlist in twenty eleven. The way people knowing that you know as iraq's winding down there's this surge buildup in you know in in afghanistan and then even the later people's lawns dead. Why would you continue. Why would you continue to fight in this. You know these things. So that's how we start. So they they get to answer that then. It's like okay. This is what they did and then we kind of get to what we feel like is the meat of it like this is what it took for me to transition. This is what i'm doing. And this is what i'm doing now for me. That was so it was so exciting. Down pitching i want to be able to show who these men and women are now. That's why the portrait so important is that we're going to capture a moment in time. Yes but the moment in time is who they are. This second mike. All these shared experiences have gotten them to.

Nothing is like that's what you do. That's how it's supposed to be and that is our generation's burden that the previous generation didn't have and it's wi agree with how dan phrases it so much and you know about the processing and how we need to be honest about that. We can't fight the last war or in this case. We can't fight the battle of the transition that the last war had because it's not ours and we don't have the numbers in this case. The previous generations didn't have the technology didn't have the you know the telephone telecommunications and stuff like that that existed and by the way when they got out even if there was a phone that existed in that timeframe it was that long distance truly long distance. I've now disconnected and my buddies are in other states and they've separated in different directions and some found it challenging found the bmw met new friends. You know from that space and such. I'm curious though. Now that you've had a chance to step away you know like when. When did this finished by the way The last one was december when we wrap writing so was about. April was okay so we're looking for months now. You've had a chance for minds at some point. It would be really interesting if you haven't done it to go and look at the time magazines or the types of publications that were published. Many years later of similar types of things. Were to veterans or vietnam. Veterans are korean war veterans to see if there is a a similar pattern. Was there already have you guys done that. Because i haven't looked up A similar pattern with previous wars. We did look up to try and see if there is any books like this out there already. Yeah and i don't think there was And that's kind of the spotlight for bill listening. You know when you think of a book. You're thinking oh it's just a flimsy like small book to read through. This is a museum quality twelve inch by twelve inch photo book. It's a copy deal book. It's a piece of art. You're not gonna just throw it on the shelf you know. It's going to be sitting around for everyone to enjoy now. It's huge package. Yes we beautifully put together. Yeah we put a lot of time.

"That's it everybody is just a human They have a different human experience. Just being a veteran and being in the military is a part of that but most of these people in the book. They found a way to help others. And it's kinda interesting hearing what you said that you guys had two different experiences with transition but you still came to this point i think about my personal career in photography i cold turkey then gave up fashion. Which is my career and like just gave up on it but still came back to photography in some capacity. So there's things that i feel like when you stop doing things yourself and you start doing things for others where you find success. The commitment to serve i think is the thing. That's that's what unites us all for sure. And that's what that's what that life coach. Who's also a therapist you know pointed out is that that's the thing that's missing and we find that common theme and i was gonna ask you boys you start going through and asking all the questions and everything that you guys start seeing a common thread. What was the common threads that you've found. I mean we just found a common thread that we all exit in a very different way but finally arrived at the same destination. What was the common thread or was there one that you saw to the seventy one that you talked to you. You know when. I went into this because i didn't know the vet space very well and i still looked better because you got me interested. Yeah yes i didn't. I didn't know i was outside of the spectrum so i was going in thinking that all these stories are somehow going to be like not so much unique there is going to be similarities with each story and every single person interviewed had such a different story and it really put me down this path and understanding that these are just human beings to and they have their own lives and their own thoughts just because they were all in the military doesn't mean they're like from one another but the only thing that i would say that was pretty consistent across the board is most of them all had rough transitions. Yeah i was about to say you vaccinate. They all struggle with their transition. And that's the one thing. I took away from it was. That's the only thing i kept hearing over and over. So that's the main issue that's going on if they're helping people that are happy with whether life has taken them but they had a shitty transition that's the aspect that we need to focus on when we say transition. Are you saying just the first thirty days sixty days ninety days. What was right on as long as es real quick to you to give example. I mean i've had people that had a transition within a month and then they found.

"Filter out a whole maybe bad ideas or or give new ideas or things like that somebody there that can really just give it to your straight and i think that's so important on a lot of veterans. I didn't do that. I i was just getting ready to say to this is this is interesting in a spend that i haven't heard that makes total sense because you're entering into a world like we talked about that ninety. Nine percent of the people are not like you. And that's what you should do is assimilate in some way and who better to teach you and guide you yet. What we tend to see though is more of the case of people looking for a mentor of a veteran has gotten out in in looking for people in this book that they can connect to and go. Hey help me out and there are organizations that that's all they do is set up and make you veteran mentors but i agree with you. I think There's a lot that you can take away by understanding the other side and them sharing the story of you know. Try to share the same thing to some people. Now that have been out for a period of time is like you know the purple heart that silver star those things being put on the top of your resume really gonna impress the hell out of that to be an employer. No they're going to thank you for your service. But where are you going to add the value in that hard true sometimes it. Somebody needs to say it well. I think what's interesting too. Is that you know we as humans need to be challenged you know. We need to put herself very vulnerable uncomfortable situations so i get where veterans. Look for other veterans after transition. But that's where because it's comfortable so when you actually force yourself to be uncomfortable and final civilian counterparts. That may seem ass backwards. You're putting yourself in a position of growth and you're gonna find it to be much easier going in that route. I think kind of sticking to a of your past and then trying to transition at the same time. Yeah how was it for you. I could read the book. But i'm just curious you know your stories What's what's interesting.

"Way. And then they they're taking burst and everything but then you have those just go all right you know look natural whatever and they they just take a couple of shots in and then like it and they come out amazing because again they know like you said they know wind. Capture it how to capture specific. Look that they know is going to turn outright. And the lighting is a certain way. They already figured that out. It's just that professional i mean. How many years did you do this before leading up this. You said ten ten ten years of doing you know professional photography. That's that's a lot of photo-taking. Yeah i i mean total. It's been about fourteen. Because i did digital for about four years and then i switched to film into that for about ten But what's interesting is now that it's reprogram to me like we might have a project coming up as a team that we're gonna be working on where i have to shoot digital and unlike i really don't want to because i'm so used to film but i understand that these photos have to come out like super fast like we need to get them out that day that we're shooting the project but even with me shooting digital. I'm still going to be programmed to maybe shoot a few photos at a time rather than bursting crazy. What what's interesting about. The book is that we were talking about transition and we're talking about the stories post Combat and we focus a whole lot. And then we. We don't always get the transition aspects on this show but we try not to focus on their. I was necessarily more about if if you can take lessons. Learned from that. Great if there is something that you want to bring to the table because it it explains later why you may be wanting to talk about push. Dramatic stressor ti. That's great but the challenge. I think we all have. Is that as much as we try to talk to our brothers and sisters who are currently serving of the importance that we're all going to transition. Nobody wants to listen. So you know initially when we started this podcast. We very much focused because people said oh my knee guy to focus a little bit more on transition. We did and and people weren't listening because they feel like they've got it all figured out. So what's great about this is now. You're gonna see veterans may.

"The strengths of how we set it up because it's who are you. What inspired you to serve a brief sketch of your service. People have context what your transition was like. And then what are you doing now. Because that's how at least in my in my mind. Why think the true power here. And i was so excited when dan was explaining it to me is that that's how you get to see. It's like you've chose the society's chosen to embrace us for this job that we did and embrace us for defending this nation and stepping up in the past twenty years. But we're still doing it. We're just not doing with a gun in our hands. Were doing it as a business leader. Were doing it as You know someone who's involved in the community who's giving back backward doing it in seventy one different unique ways with seventy-one different routes into the military and out of it. But you're going to see in the you're gonna see in the book and those stories that we collected there's tens of thousands literally millions of those stories floating around the united states. Right now on the goal is to show in to capture that i think To kind of wrap as nail that. But basically when i was trailing the country adrover costs forty two states It was a little over sixteen thousand miles in about two months but across the country. I think four times total and interviewed seventy-one veterans. But i noticed that it was kind of crazy travelling in meeting up with them but we did have a lot of structure with the question. So that's kind of helped each interview flow naturally and it wasn't so much like a a pressured like oh i got to think of a random question to ask you. It was very structured. I basically shut them the questions before we met so they kind of had an idea of what they are being processed. Exactly and like. Dan and tom said like nothing was very super deep or uncomfortable. It was more. Like how many deployments did you do. Where were you at. What missions report of okay. Now let's talk about now like and that was the majority of it and then when i was capturing their photos you know some people are a little more photogenic than others Me being photographer. I hate having my photo taken. I'm just one of those people that doesn't like it and But everyone did really good. Because i would try and capture them off. Guard like admit position them in a certain area or we'd sit down their home or in their workplace or outdoors and i would either capture them kind of doing something and they weren't just standing there with their hands in their pockets or it was more just kind. The moment i mean we have a couple of portraits of people. Didn't even know i was taking photos of the time and.

"A first person perspective. Not a high level. You know this is what happened. And why units were moved from this place to the other but like what was the experience like on the ground. We didn't tell the story now. Yeah but then. The other piece of this is There are too many veterans. Who don't want their story. And then everything. That's going on. And i i hate this to be the thing that's talked about all the time but s. and and you know suicide rates and all that kind of stuff. I really think it's because people are are staying to themselves. They're not getting out there. They're not talking to each other. They're staying disconnected and so having that open platform in that open dialogue. Not just with bela veterans but also you know civilians as well and just say hey. Here's my story. Here's how you connect you know with the veteran community. And that's kind of the the conduit that's why we created this book to really open that dialogue and say if you wanna learn and experience what. It's like to be a veteran especially over the last twenty years. Read these stories here from these men women who have served in so that you can really understand and get the gravity of what twenty years of war means but not just from the combat perspective. What people have done in transition and who they've become and why you know veterans honestly in my perspective and i think a lot of veterans perspective and a lot of people who probably don't realize they're talking veterans day end up being incredible leaders in their businesses. Their communities families may never know they just never know and that's also the incredible part about the photos because if you were to put all their photos on the wall and not know any context behind the book you just saw the photos you would think we were just taking photos of everyday americans. You wouldn't know you're taking photos of veterans well in one of the points that we've been talking about with sort of the past meeting the present less than one percent of the american population served in the past twenty years when you look at the numbers of eligible males.
