Oklahoma City Memorial
This was my first trip to Oklahoma City, and my first opportunity to see the Memorial.
Two words - Tragic, yet Inspiring.
Try to make it down there some day if you get the chance.

We visited on our last PCS. The kids still remember it, which says a lot about how well done and moving it was.11:46 AM
My MEPS was the one in Oklahoma City so I visited it on one of my trips to MEPS. Then I took my wife to it when I last visited MEPS to swear in.
The part I found eerie was the 9:01 gate. There was a rumbling noise and to me it sounded like a truck idling. I think it was the pumps for the reflecting pool but it made me jump a little when I walked through it.
We visited when we PCSed from California to DC. It is a beautiful memorial.8:12 PM
Dang! We were TDY at Tinker at the same time? Bummer, wish I knew.
