Today I Remember Rick Rescorla, a True Hero

Real Estate Agent with REALTY EXECUTIVES TUCSON ELITE DRE# SA113961000

A man named Rick Rescorla tried to tell people about such an impending attack after the truck bombing of the WTC. Long before 9/11 ever happened. He and some associates even volunteered to go to the Middle East and hunt down and kill UBL.

There was a documentary shown first on the History Channel called "The Man Who Predicted 9/11". You can Google that phrase and pull up a You Tube viewing of the show. Rescorla was a true hero on 9/11, saving thousands of Morgan Stanley associates. Rick died in the collapse of the South tower on his way back up, to try to get more of his people out. TODAY I REMEMBER RICK RESCORLA as well as all the other people who lost their lives on 9/11.

Jon, I just happened across this post and was so pleased to see your tribute to Cyril Richard "Rick" Rescorla a giant among men and a real honest to God hero. His life story would never be made into a movie because no one would believe it. A photograph of him by Peter Arnett, (then a young correspondent in Vietnam) was used as the cover of Gen. Hal Moore's book "We Were Soldiers Once And Young". Thanks for sharing.

Yes, I've had the book since it first came out. I also have "Heart of a Soldier", Rick's life history. And the video "We Were Soldiers", and the 9/11 video. Rick has been a hero of mine for a long time now.

Thank you for this outstanding post. Suggested for sure. We should never forget - we said we never will but life goes on and we worry about our own silly problems.

He really was an American Hero and needs to be remembered. Rick shall be remembered because of people like you.
