Please read through this piece and make
a donation to Rick's Memorial Foundation. I saw the History Channel documentary on Rick Rescorla. He was
a brave man, who served and saved thousands on 9-11...
THE MAN WHO PREDICTED 9/11
The History Channel
THE MAN WHO PREDICTED 9/11 tells the extraordinary
story of Rick Rescorla - from his English childhood, to his heroics in Vietnam, to his work as Security Chief at the World
Trade Center where he became convinced that an attack was imminent. His foresight and actions saved more than 2,700
lives on 9/11. It follows the dramatic timeline of what happened to Rick between 8:45 a.m. when the first plane hit
Tower 1 and 9:58 a.m. when Tower 2 -- and 500,000 tons of steel and concrete -- collapsed on top of him. It features
interviews with his biographer, Pulitzer Prize winning author James Stewart, his wife Susan, many of the men and women whose
lives he saved that day, and footage of Rescorla making his predictions.
THE RICHARD C. RESCORLA MEMORIAL
My husband, Rick Rescorla, was one of
the 3,000 Americans murdered by terrorists on 9/11/01. Rick was Vice President of Security for Morgan-Stanley/Dean-Witter,
the largest tenant in the World Trade Center. His heroic actions on the day of the attack, along with his extraordinary foresight
and preparation, saved the lives of 2,700 people. His story has been told on television and radio - in newspapers and magazines
- and in the book Heart Of A Soldier, by Pulitzer Prize winner James B. Stewart. Rick is also on the cover of another book,
We Were Soldiers Once... And Young, written by General Hal Moore and Joseph Galloway. You see, 9-11 was not the first time
Rick had distinguished himself. 9-11 was just the last heroic chapter of his heroic life.
I am so very proud to have had him in
my life. I want so to have his legacy live on. Two years ago Rick's friends and I decided to establish The Richard C.
Rescorla Memorial Foundation in Rick's memory, to keep present the magnitude of Rick's life and to promote the virtues Rick
lived by – duty, honor, and courage.
Our first project is to erect a bronze
statue of Rick at the new National Infantry Museum to be built at Ft. Benning, Georgia. We have commissioned a prominent sculptor,
Edward Hlavka, to create this work. The bronze will take a year to cast and will cost approximately $100,000. We have
already raised 75% of the monies. We need the rest, and are appealing to all those who would like to see a true American hero
have this honor.
We are a non-profit foundation.
All contributions will be tax deductible. Your contribution would be greatly appreciated.
