The Bedford area’s Sixth Annual Community Ecumenical 9-11 will feature a man who was there.
Sergeant Major James O. Smith (U.S. Army, Retired), was still on active duty on Sept. 11, 2001.
“I was attending a meeting in the Pentagon,” he said.
SGM Smith is an Army combat medic and Army nurse. At the time he was assigned as chief medical NCO to the National Guard Bureau. The meeting room was to the left of where the hijacked airliner hit.
