About the Book

For understandable and inevitable reasons, the colloquially termed “9/11” is most symbolically linked to the World Trade Center. The Pentagon’s destruction received far less coverage, but those who helped extinguish the fires, tend to the wounded, and clean up the aftermath will never forget such a loss.
Thousands took part in the Pentagon recovery effort following 9/11, but few knew exactly what they were signing up for. A nearby Army unit, the 3rd United States Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), sent its soldiers to contribute where they could, as best they could, and in any capacity they could. In this book, soldiers of The Old Guard have elected to share their experiences. Their accounts attest to the honor and camaraderie that were necessary for picking up the pieces, as well as the traumatic effects of being enveloped in the aftermath of tragedy.
