*Editorâs Note: In Remembering 9/11: 10 Year Anniversary, the Custer County Chief asked some of our citizens about 9/11: Did they remember where they were and what they were doing when the planes hit ... they did; Do they believe this event impacted the United States and if so, how? And where they impacted directly?
Deputy Roy Crites was working for the Custer County Sheriffâs Office at the time of 9/11. He said then Sheriff Ted Henderson came into the room and said,âHoly cow! I think weâre under attack!â
