Pentagon rescuer's uniform and artifacts
This material from Officer Isaac Ho‘opi‘i includes his uniform (shirt with insignia, trousers, boots, and name tag), his shield, his dog Vito’s collar and shield, a K-9 patch, and a poster of Vito. Context:
Hearing a report on his patrol-car radio of the terrorists’ attack on the Pentagon, Isaac Ho‘opi‘i (a native of Hawaii) rushed to the destroyed portion of the building. He quickly realized that many people were trapped inside and disoriented by the thick smoke. After carrying a number of people to safety, he ventured as far as he dared go into the smoke-filled building, calling out in his booming deep voice: “Come towards my voice.” Ho‘opi‘i is credited with saving many lives.
