I was in Oklahoma City when it happened, I couldn’t stop watching the footage. It was a direct attack and we knew instantly we would be called up.
– Former AWACS Weapons Director Laura Bachenberg
Twelve years ago today, AWACS Weapons Director Laura Bachenberg received word that the United States had been attacked. Though horrified, she knew exactly what her country needed her to do and did not hesitate to suit up for battle along with her brothers and sisters in arms. Laura has since taken on a new role, the role of being a devoted wife and mother to her two children. Today, we would like to share Laura’s story with you in honor of all those who answered the call on that dark, September morning. May we never forget those we lost and may we never forget the cost of freedom.Watch the Laura Bachenberg “Armed & Fabulous” Profiler here:
