Construction of the Pentagon Building for the War Department began on September 11th, 1941 and was officially completed on January 15, 1943. Sixty years from the day of construction, a terrorist attack killed one hundred eighty-four people including Geep Fisher, a fellow DoD contractor, and Chuck Droz, a former supervisor. Their sacrifice is not forgotten.
