Navy Commander's identification badges
These ID badges belonged to Comdr. Patrick Dunn, a victim of terrorist attack on the Pentagon. Context:
Being a U.S. soldier has always been a dangerous job, but a terrorist attack was not expected by anyone sitting at a desk in the Pentagon.
On the morning of September 11, Comdr. Patrick Dunn was the watch commander of the Navy Command Center on the first floor, in the D ring of the Pentagon. Personnel in the Center were aware of the terrorist attacks in New York and were monitoring developments along with other situations around the world.
At 9:38 am, terrorists crashed a Boeing 757 into the Pentagon. The plane slid directly through the Navy Command Center, killing twenty-nine of the thirty people working in the facility. In the Pentagon attack, 125 employees were killed and some 140 more were injured; aboard the airplane fifty-three passengers, seven crew members, and five hijackers died.
