"Though time continually moves us further away from September 11, 2001, we will never forget the men and women that our Pentagon community lost that day," Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel told Pentagon employees this week marking the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Hagel praised the responders and employees who came to the aid of others during the terrorist attacks, along with Defense Department employees who returned to their jobs the day after the event and who helped rebuild the Pentagon.
