On September 11, 2001, terrorists took the lives of nearly 3,000 people on American soil.
We Are The People And WE Will NEVER Forget!
The Pentagon was one of those targets. When American Airlines Flight 77 hit the west wall of the building‘s first floor, it set off a chain of events that killed 125 people inside – most of whom were Army and Navy service members and employees – along with the 64 people on board the Boeing 757. In New York, 17 Marine reservists were among the firefighters killed as the World Trade Centers collapsed.
That day was 16 years ago, but it’s one that changed life for everyone in America, as well as many across the globe. It’s what propelled many to join the military, go into civil service or just be inspired to do more for their country.
