Terrorists Strike the World Trade Center – 1993
Tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of the first attack on the World Trade Center in New York City. On February 26, 1993, terrorists attempted to destroy the WTC with a truck bomb, but failed.
The attack was organized by Khaled Sheikh Mohammed and fellow jihadist conspirators whose plan was to use the truck bomb to weaken the foundation of the North Tower (Tower 1) of the WTC, causing it to lean, tip, and fall into the South Tower (Tower 2), destroying both towers and the murdering the thousands of innocent people inside.
The truck they used was loaded up with over 1,340 lbs. of nitrate-hydrogen gas and placed in the lower garage levels of the WTC. Though the terrorists did manage to successfully detonate their payload, it did not bring down the towers as they had hoped. Six innocent people were killed and over a thousand more injured.
These murderous terrorists who perpetrated that first attack on the WTC are the same radical jihadists who later attacked the USS Cole and flew the planes into the WTC towers on 9/11. The Taliban and Al-Qaeda, who worked together to plan these and many other terrorist attacks throughout the years, are still operating in Afghanistan, where our troops are fighting to smoke them out of their caves and end their jihad for good.
We are currently sending support to the 1/5 Marines who are fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan.

This is an important opportunity for you to make a huge difference in the lives of some Marines who are making a huge difference in the war to keep America safe from the threat of terrorists.
The 1st Marine Division or the “Old Breed” has nine Presidential Unit Citations or PUCs and is made up of a Headquarters Battalion, the 1st, 5th, 7th, and 11th Marine Regiments, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st and 3d Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalions, 1st Tank Battalion, and 3d Assault Amphibian Battalion. These units represent a combat-ready force of more than 22,000 Marines and Sailors who provide a ground combat element (GCE) in the I Marine Expeditionary Force (I MEF), providing task-organized forces for assault operations, amphibious forcible entry and subsequent land operations in any operational environment.
Our first mission for the 1st Marine Division is to send our support to the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines who deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM or as Battalion Landing Teams (BLTs) for deployment with Marine Expeditionary Units (MEUs), Special Operations Capable (SOC), or in order to support I MEF operations and training in the PACOM and CENTCOM AORs.
Their standing mission is to deploy to any operating environment and defeat our enemies across the entire spectrum of warfare.
Help us reach every single one of our Marines, giving them the personal thanks they deserve. Each of our care packages have items they can use as soon as they open the box, everything from fresh coffee, treats and hygiene products simply not available to them on the front lines.
5th Marine regiment has a long and incredible history in the annals of the USMC. The unit was first created on July 13, 1914 in Vera Cruz, Mexico and has served in every major conflict since then. The brave men and women that make up this elite force are nicknamed “GERONIMO!”
