TAPE TRANSCRIPTION

P R O C E E D I N G S



MAJ MELNYK: This is MAJ Les Melnyk, at 8:30 in the morning, 17 September, on the drill floor of the 69th Armory.

CSM Cruzado: On your feet.

LTC Slack: All right. Take your seats.

All right. About a week ago, the whole damn thing changed. A week ago, we could watch on television as the Palestinians and the Israelis fought it out and did unspeakable acts of terrorism back and forth, and we could look at other countries and other places and see all these terrible things in Bosnia, these genocidal acts, these mass graves, all these other sickening things, and we could say, well, it happens there, but it doesn't happen here.

If Japan wanted to attack or if Germany wanted at us, they had to cross the ocean. And even though they compare this tragedy to Pearl Harbor, well, Pearl Harbor was a fight between two armed enemies, both of them wearing uniforms.

You guys can hear me back there? (Uses microphone) How about that, can you hear me?
