Day 1 NYC

Nico, the Horse Powers crew, Jon and Eva Learn after arriving JFK airport late Thursday night and  staying at hotel in Union Square, Manhattan, we had sausage and egg sandwiches, milk & coffee at a coffee shop on 3rd Avenue for breakfast Friday. Then we walked all the way down past Canal Street and Soho stopping in several shops along the way. We got a big yellow taxi the rest of the way to Battery Park where we caught the ferry to Liberty Island and the Statue of Liberty. Before the boat we took a pic of Freedom Tower. After a giant cheeseburger at the Statue I visited the 911 Memorial museum. This was emotional for me as I took my decision to be a combat soldier instead of a fireman after I saw those twin towers fall. I thought I could do the most good for free-world as soldier, like my forefathers.

Overall for me, NYC was some experience but the crowds and noise wore heavy on my PTSD at times.Screen Shot 2016-05-12 at 12.14.23Screen Shot 2016-05-12 at 12.14.36
