The 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and the United States’ military withdrawal from Afghanistan have coalesced into historical bookends, Norwich University political science professor Jason F. Jagemann said. The terrorist attacks prompted a U.S. invasion and 20 years of war in Afghanistan and lately a torrent of headlines and commentary.

From coast to coast, university community shares recollections

Where were you on Sept. 11, 2001?

Most of Norwich University’s current undergraduates were very young or, in some cases, not born yet, when the terrorist attacks occurred on New York’s World Trade Center, Washington, D.C.’s Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, 20 years ago. But many of Norwich’s graduates remember vividly where they were, and shared their reflections on Facebook and by email.
