Opinion: Remembering Those Lost on Sept. 11

Eleven years after terrorist attacks.

On Sept. 11, 2001, 9:37:46 a.m., American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon.

The Pentagon's on-site firehouse responded immediately to the crash. Firefighters from nearby Reagan National Airport and Arlington County Fire Department arrived within minutes.

One-hundred-and-eighty-four lives were lost at the Pentagon that day. Nearly 3,000 people died that day in the nearly simultaneous attacks in Arlington, New York and Pennsylvania. Since Sept. 11, 2001, more than 6,400 U.S. military service men and women have died in support of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The following list of people who lived in Connection Newspapers coverage area and died in the Sept. 11 2001 terrorist attacks is compiled from multiple sources, including news reports, and is likely not complete.
