President’s Citizen Medal to Rick Rescorla

President Trump Presents the Presidential Citizens Medal

The White House – Nov 7, 2019 – 15:24

Rescorla died a hero’s death saving his charges at Morgan Stanley in the south tower of the World Trade Center on 9/11. Rescorla was head of security for the company; he directed the evacuation in which he had long drilled the company’s WTC employees. He knew that a terrorist attack on the WTC was coming and he knew what had happened as soon as the building was hit. His message was one of resolve. Using a bullhorn, he shepherded his charges into the tower’s one usable fire escape and exhorted them that it was “a day to be proud to be an American.”

We will never know how many heroes helped, even if only one other person, that day. Heroes sung and unsung.
