Proudest Memory of Sarajevo

Transcript
I would say the most pride I had in Sarajevo was when the first plane landed. That was something for me. We were there at the airport waiting with our vehicle. There was a bunch of vehicles obviously, but we were all sitting on top of our vehicle waiting and I had my video camera at that time and I videoed the first plane coming in on the runway. And all the guys were, you could hear them all talking and you know, everybody was in a good mood. We were all happy, you know. So just to me, seeing the first plane come in was, for Sarajevo, was the best, the best experience there.
