Description
This copy of 'Soldiers' magazine, dated September 2001, was recovered from the wreckage of the Pentagon.
Being a U.S. soldier has always been a dangerous job. The Pentagon is the headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense and houses over 16,000 military employees. Despite the magnitude of the September 11 attacks—125 Pentagon employees were killed and some 140 others were injured—work continued at the Pentagon as cleanup and reconstruction commenced.
