Call for Stories

We all remember where we were when the first plane struck the World Trade Center Sept. 11, 2001. We are partnering with the Colorado Thirty Group for a community-wide commemoration of the 18th anniversary of that day. For this reason, we are collecting stories from our Schriever Air Force Base members who were uniquely impacted by the events of 9.11.01. If you would like to share your experience, please email and we will set up a time for filming.  Filming will take no more than 15 minutes and will occur at the SpringsTV Studio at 30 S. Nevada Ave, Suite 606.
