On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, Fort McCoy was an open installation, and it was a bright, beautiful, blue sky kind of day. That same morning, current Fort McCoy Police Chief Brian Bomstein was sleeping after working until 1 a.m. at a saw mill, and Deputy Police Chief Brian Lord was in Madison attending a criminal justice college class. By all accounts, it was a pretty normal September morning for all. (Link)
