Bin Laden's death hits close to home

Wausau, WI (WAOW)--  Charlotte Ostrowski and her family have waited almost a decade to hear the words "Osama Bin Laden is dead."

And now that they have, they feel relief.

Charlotte's son Eric was stationed at the Pentagon when it was attacked in 2001.  Charlotte remembers it as the worst day of her life.

But now, the news that the military killed Bin Laden, is something she never thought she'd hear.

"I was stunned. I almost didn't believe it because it had been so long. I almost didn't think it was ever going to happen."

Charlotte and her family were thrilled the hear the news especially since her son is still active in the military.  Thankfully, he is currently stationed in the U.S.
