On 9/11 anniversary, Trump salutes 'heroes' of Flight 93
At least 20 minutes before the plane crashed into the North Tower, American Airlines had the names, addresses, and other information on three of the five hijackers, details that would help the FBI get a jumpstart on the investigation. Rick Rescorla was already a hero of the battlefields of Vietnam, where he earned the Silver Star and other awards for his exploits as an Army officer.
Rescorla — once immortalized on the cover of the book "We Were Soldiers Once… And Young" — would often sing to his men to calm them down while under fire, using songs of his youth while growing up in the United Kingdom. Many more in the South Tower would hear his songs on Sep. When American Flight 11 hit the tower next to him, Port Authority ordered Rescorla to keep his employees at their desks, according to San Diego Source. I'm getting my people the fuck out of here. Rescorla, who had frequently warned the Port Authority and his company about the World Trade Center's security weaknesses, had already issued the order to evacuate.

During the evacuation, Rescorla calmly reassured people. If something should happen to me, I want you to know I've never been happier. You made my life. Rescorla was last seen on the 10th floor of the South Tower, heading upward to look for any stragglers.
