DUBOIS, CLEARFIELD COUNTY - Almost everyone remembers where they were when they first heard about the September 11, 2001 attacks. For instance, James Fogg remembers being at his Armstrong County home and Glenn Frost recalls just waking up and hearing the news.
Tuesday afternoon Frost told Your News Leader "I was shocked". Frost was one of about 40 people that gathered at DuBois Village to remember those that lost their lives on that September day.
Among the guest speakers were State Representative Matt Gabler and Legion 17 Commander, John Shenkle. Both shared the stories of where they were that morning.
Gabler was a senior in High School and Shenkle was working a night shift. He had been asleep for just an hour or so when his wife woke him and he realized the United States was under attack. Having served for 27 years, he wanted to do something, but knew all he could do in those moments was wait to see what would happen next.
Eleven years later, the emotions are so similiar to how they were then.
Frost says, " I still feel for the ones that lost their lives plus, the families that are suffering that lost their loved ones and the children that are growing up now and don't have a daddy to talk to".
