Pentagon Attack Narrative Accounts

Dates: 12 September - 27 November 2001
Collection Number: AR/668

Collection Information

In the days after the attack on the Pentagon on 11 September 2001, the Naval Historical Center (NHC) and Navy Combat Documentation Detachment 206 (DET 206) worked with the Director of Navy Staff (DNS) VADM Patricia Tracey to request personal narrative accounts of the attack on the Pentagon.  The request was sent to all of OPNAV

55 individuals submitted narratives of their experiences on the day of the attack.  The narrative accounts are listed below and available to download as PDFs.  Some individuals that submitted accounts also have oral histories in the DET 206 Pentagon Attack Collection.  If their oral history is available online, a link has been provided to that as well.
