Pentagon Tour - July 12th

 Posted by Picasa

Yesterday’s tour of the Pentagon was a forceful reminder of the events of 9/11, and the heightened security which has ensued. During the tour there were numerous references to the terrorist attack. We were told the names and ages of the youngest and oldest victims of that day, and shown the flight path of the hijacked aircraft. The soldier who conducted our tour told us of the dedication of the workers who rebuilt the structure in less than a year. Our guide made the event as interesting as he could – considering the fact that we were touring a big office building – and told a few interesting stories. At the beginning of the tour, one of my colleagues suggested that if the tour got too boring, we could lose our little yellow tour passes and see what happens. Fortunately it didn’t come to that - although it would have been interesting to see the security forces in action.
