Jon Wertheim: September 11 forever alters lives of Army-Navy game players

It was a calm Tuesday morning. Summer had just about seeped into fall. The financial markets were relatively stable. The United States, as it had been for the better part of nearly three decades, was at peace. Then, at 8:46 a.m., a hijacked plane hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City, followed less than 20 minutes later by another hijacked airliner that plowed into the South Tower. A third plane smacked into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and a fourth was headed for either the White House or the Capitol. After passengers subdued the hijackers of United Airlines Flight 93, it crashed in a Pennsylvania field. By the end of the day, nearly 3,000 Americans were dead.
