MHS Remembers 9/11

I was at Walter Reed in 2001; saw the Pentagon burning from the window. There was a fair amount of uncertainty for the role of behavioral health during the crisis. My mentor, Dr. Harold Wain, rose from uncertainty, commandeered a hospital van and driver, and took me with him to Arlington Hospital, Virginia, where we visited with victims on the ward and as they rolled in the door. It was bizarre how quickly we were assimilated into the care teams. It set the tone for the entire war for having embedded behavioral health assets as part of the acute trauma team. Eventually the work was published in a journal publication and a book chapter...but it all started with that day.

MHS Remembers 9/11

On September 11, 2001, an airplane slammed into the side of the Pentagon as part of the terrorist attacks that would become known simply as 9/11. We honor those who died during the attacks, and we also recognize the heroes who responded to the attack on the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, the World Trade Center in New York City, and the crash site of flight 93 located near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
