9/11 Pentagon

Al Qaeda terrorists hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 and flew it into the western side of the Pentagon. Massive destruction and an instant conflagration created an immediate life or death crisis. First Responders mounted a comprehensive effort to contain the fire, rescue survivors, and aid the wounded. In 36 hours the site was stabilized; the toll was assessed and recovery begun.
