AMCOM chaplain remembers fateful day in 2001

Posted: Updated:
HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

 

The chaplain of the Army Materiel Command based at Redstone Arsenal was among those who took part in a 9-11 service Wednesday on the post.

The service was in the Sparkman Center's Bob Jones Auditorium and featured two people who survived the attack on the Pentagon.

In 2001, James Boulware was a chaplain for a National Guard unit in Pennsylvania. His unit had not been deployed since before the Korean War but shortly after 9-11, the troops were headed overseas.

The unit was sent to Germany to replace a Guard unit there that was deployed to Iraq.

"You know, you just don't forget that, how its effected our country, how it changed not only the course of our country, but individually, it changed my course, my life," he said.
