Stories

9/11 Pentagon

Arlington, VA

He was the Senior Enlisted Military Assistant in the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army Manpower & Reserve Affairs at the Pentagon.  He was killed in a briefing for Deputy Chief of Staff of Army Personnel LTG Timothy Maude when the hijacked Boeing 757 of American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the building's western fascade.  

SGM Ivory and I were together in 3C641 for the final IPR for the Sergeant Major of the Army's Enlisted Staff ride which was going to occur on September 12th. We spoke about his meeting with LTG Maude before the meeting started and ten minutes before the IPR was over, he and SGM Strickland got up and I walked them to the door and shook their hands and told them I would see them tomorrow morning. Five minutes later, the plane struck the building and they were both gone. I admired SGM Ivory greatly because of his calm demeanor and professional attitude and I think of him every day. On the 10th Anniversay of 9-11 I went back to D.C. and visited the memorial for the first time and cried like a child at his bench. I now have a tatoo on my right shoulder with both of their names on it and the words "I will never forget". Three weeks ago I named my new puppy, a beautiful black giant schnauzer, Lacey, so I get to think of SGM a lot. Thanks so much for your friendship and your service and may God keep your family safe.
