Twenty years ago tomorrow on 9/11/2001, we experienced the deadliest terrorist attacks in U.S. history on our home soil. Over 3,000 people died in the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York City, Washington DC at the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. For many of us, it seems like yesterday. We will never forget that fateful day.
We will never forget the thousands who perished on 9/11, nor will we ever forget Rick Rescorla, whom we honor today as our HeroVet.
Rick has been dubbed the man who predicted 9/11, as he worked tirelessly to protect his fellow employees from an attack on the World Trade Center. He gave his life to save others that day. Rick was a highly decorated U.S. Army veteran, husband and father, cancer survivor, executive, and a hero to us all. Read his inspirational story.
