Former Army Reserve Ambassador, Soldier recalls 9/11 attack on Pentagon
Former Virginia Army Reserve Ambassador Isabelle Slifer, seated, receives the Public Service Commendation Medal Aug. 25 in recognition of her six years of service as an ambassador. In early September 2001, when she was a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army reserve, Slifer started a new job at the U.S. Department of the Army Headquarters in the Pentagon. On 9/11, she and her coworkers narrowly escaped the terrorist attack that claimed 189 lives at the Pentagon that morning.
