Rick Rescorla, also served as Vice President of Corporate Security for the firm of Morgan Stanley. On 9/11, he witnessed the burning of Tower 1 at the World Trade Center from his office on the 66th floor of Tower 2. Rescola ordered the evacuation of Tower 2 and his actions saved the lives of 2700 people. When he was satisfied that all of his fellow employees were safely out of harms way, Rescorla returned to the tower. Ironically, his implementation of evacuation drills and preparedness saved the lives of thousands; his heroism and sense of duty, to leave no one behind, caused his demise.

Lieutenant Rick Rescorla, served with the 7th Cavalry Regiment in Vietnam. He led a platoon of soldiers through Ia Drang Valley, where more than 200 Americans died. This heroic warrior was British, a former member of the British Army and moved to the United States in 1963 to join the U.S. Army.

The statue honoring retired Colonel Rescorla will be placed and unveiled on Heritage Walk at the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center. The unveiling ceremony will coincide with the arrival of a steel I-Beam that was part of Tower 1 at the World Trade Center. The I-Beam is being dedicated to all the Army men and women who have lost their lives, since 9/11 and to those who serve presently.

The National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center at Fort Benning is a wonderful place to honor our soldiers. Within the walls are stories of all our soldiers. It is a fantastic place for quiet reflection and a great place to visit.
