"Give us, we pray, the power to discern clearly right from wrong, and allow all our words and actions to be governed thereby, and by the laws of this land. Especially we pray that our concern shall be for all the people regardless of station, race, or calling."

--President Dwight D. Eisenhower
First inaugural address, January 20, 1953.

Everyone seems to be more focused on the World Trade Center tragedy rather than the Pentagon being hit also.
This page is meant to focus on that area of the tragedy, and the Oklahomans that were lost there and in NYC.

In Memory...

Petty Officer 2nd Class Brian Anthony Moss

The night before American Airlines Flight 77 rammed into the Pentagon, Navy electronics technician and Petty Officer 2nd class Brian Moss, 34, called his mother in the tiny town of Sperry, Okla., to brag about his new work digs.
After months of waiting for renovations to finish, Moss was finally installed in his spanking-new office on the Pentagon's west side.
"It was like getting a new uniform for him - it made him that much prouder of his service," Pat Moss said. "He talked about the huge Navy seal in the floor right outside."
In January, Moss was selected for the prestigious Sailor of the Year citation for Naval District Washington. A few months ago, he told his family that he hoped to be promoted to petty officer first class this fall, said his sister, Angie Moss Howard.

Maj. Ronald Milam

Maj. Ronald Milam had set two priorities, family and career, and both had had just taken an upswing, his parents said.
His wife, Jacqueline, is due to deliver the couple's second child in January, and Ronald's promotion to major was less than a year ago.
The soldier's father, Tommie Milam, attributes his son's success in the Army to the leadership skills and drive he learned as a point-guard on the high school basketball team. After the Persian Gulf War, he was sent to Saudi Arabia, where he traded orders with another soldier to stay an extra year and train Saudis in the Patriot missile program.

Assistant Secretary of the Army, John McLaurin III, "Major Ron Milam was a great leader, he set an example every day for everyone to follow." Major Milam was inside the Pentagon when terrorists attacked September 11th. McLaurin, "Ron was a bright, shining light that illuminated all that was right with today's generation of officers. I miss him and I know you do too." McLaurin, Milam's boss traveled to Oklahoma to remember Ron Milam. "Father, husband, son, brother, cousin, nephew, he really loved his family."

Pak had received the Joint Service Achievement Medal, Joint Service Commendation Medal, and Army Good Conduct Medal.

So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. In that day you will no longer ask me anything. I tell you the truth, my Father will give you anything you ask for in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
