Sacramento trauma chaplain reflects on September 11 attacks

First responders to the September 11 disaster sites included dozens from Northern California. One of those first responders was a trauma chaplain from Sacramento. Chaplain Mindi Russell remembers getting the call on Sept. 11, 2001 to respond following the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. With all commercial flights grounded, she left aboard a military aircraft out of Travis Air Force base. Her boots were on the ground Sept. 12. See more in the video above.
