Congressman recalls tragic events of 9-11
One of Mississippi’s own recalls his firsthand encounter with the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001. Congressman Roger Wicker was at a breakfast hosted by the Secretary of Defense in the Pentagon between 8-9 a.m. that morning. As he was leaving the building, he was unaware of the attacks on the World Trade Center. He learned of the attacks from the guards as he was leaving the Pentagon. Wicker returned to his condo in Virginia and said he could smell the smoke from the attack on the Pentagon and see the debris floating in the air. After Congress was briefed on the attack, the crowd broke out into “God Bless America.” “That was a truly moving event!” Wicker said.
