Tony Rose

On September 11, 2001, Sgt. Maj. (Ret.) Tony Rose was talking with his co- workers at the Pentagon about the World Trade Center attack, when American Airlines flight 77 crashed into the building on the floor below him. "I was blown off my feet into the pylonjust like some invisible hand pushed me." Although injured, Tony participated in the rescue, recovery, and security operations after the Pentagon was attacked. He is one of the many American heroes from that day. [+]
