In this Monday, Sept. 5, 2011, photo, U.S. Marine Jorge Pedroza, of Long Beach, Calif., poses for a portrait at his small patrol base, in Helmand province, southern Afghanistan. Pedroza, on his memory of the Sept. 11, 2001 attack: "I was actually in the principal's office, waiting to give the morning announcements, and I saw it on the TV, and I had been there a few years earlier, and I was like 'Wow, I can't believe that actually happened. That was just crazy. School kept going, but a lot of parents came and took their kids away though." (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley) less
