In Columbus, Georgia, military members react to bin Laden death

Lucia Hellein remembers watching the first tower fall. She was in basic training when an instructor came into the room and said there had been an attack. A soldier next to her began screaming. Everyone tried to calm her down, explaining that they were safe. That wasn’t the problem, Hellein said. The soldier’s mother worked in the Twin Towers.
