Teen born in 9/11 wake joins Navy on anniversary

American teen Tierney Crutcher is sworn in as a Navy seaman recruit at a Tennessee recruiting station Wednesday, on the 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, which was the day her mother went into labor with her.


The Memphis high school graduate, who was actually born on Sept. 13, 2001, says a military career became appealing as she learned more about the different branches and choices.


Crutcher says she's excited to meet new people, travel "and just get a different experience in life."


She's headed to boot camp, then sonar technician training.
