On that day I was coming home from a tour of duty in Taiwan with the U.S. Air Force. I flew from Taiwan to California by way of the Philippines and Hawaii. I flew from California to Dallas on the morning of the tragedy. I changed planes in Dallas and finished my journey at Birmingham. I was in Dallas just a few minutes before the tragic shooting. I was picked up in Birmingham by my fiance and my mom. We traveled to Jacksonville to my mom’s home. Shortly after we arrived there, we saw the news on TV. It was just a chilling day for me knowing I was there just minutes before the shooting.
