The 2,996 Project: Remembering Captain John Ogonowski, Pilot of Flight 11 (Updated)
The 2,996 project was launched by D.C. Roe, and involves more than 3,000 bloggers who have joined together to commemorate each and every one of the victims of 9/11 on this day, the fifth anniversary of the day that our nation was attacked by Islamist terrorists, the day that America woke up to the fact that Islamic extremists were at war against the United States of America.
As a partipant in the 2,996 Project, Freedom's Zone is honored to remember Captain John Ogonowski, 52, American Airlines pilot of Flight 11, of Dracut, Massachusetts. John was the Pilot of Flight 11. He lived on a 150-acre farm north of Boston. He is survived by his wife, Margaret, and three daughters, Laura, 16; Caroline, 14; and Mary, 11. A lifelong aviation buff, he joined the Air Force after graduating from college and flew planes at the close of the Vietnam War. He joined American Airlines in 1979 (See NYT profile, John Ogonowski: Captain on the Farm).

May God Bless The Ogonowski Family, and all of us."
NEVER FORGET 9/11 AND NEVER FORGET OUR RESOLVE - THERE WILL BE NO QUARTER FOR THE ISAMISTS THAT STILL THREATEN OUR NATION.
