Posted on 09/11/2017 11:26:45 AM PDT by Texas Fossil
A man who was convinced the Twin Towers would be targeted in a terror attack led 2,700 people to safety from the World Trade Center before being killed when he went back in looking for stragglers.
Security chief Rick Rescorla carried out training drills with staff at Morgan Stanley Dean Witter to prepare them for a terror atrocity after realising the vulnerability of buildings to air terror attacks.
But after leading thousands to safety on 9/11 when his fears were realised, the 62-year-old Cornishman was last seen going back up the stairs of the South Tower before it collapsed.

Then there are great men.
God Bless his family and all he touched.
The biography on him was great.
The Real Heroes Are Dead
A love story.
By James B. Stewart
An absolute must read.
And reread on this day.
IIRC “The Real Heroes Are Dead”, was the genesis for
Heart of a Soldier Paperback
also by James B. Stewart
Not much of a stretch to assume the WTC would be attacked again. The WTC was bombed in 1993 by the Blind Sheik, who was admitted into the US by the GHW Bush Administration despite being a known terrorist. He was even given a ‘green card’.
Some newcomers to the forum may not be aware that Rick Recola was a platoon leader under Hal Moore and is depicted on the cover of “We were Soldiers Once... And Young.” He served with the great FR poster Aloha Ronnie in that famous battle.
Ronnie still drops by once in a while and is always an inspiration to us all.
Thank for pic.
Yes, I knew.
I’ve been called a liar here on FR for telling what I told my wife when the first plane flew into the first tower.
But I told her, sounds like Ben Laden has been at it again. When the 2nd hit the second tower, I told her “see, it was no accident”.
I had read about the first attack. For that an individual here openly called me a liar.
Does he also get a spot on the klinton death list since this is bj’s legacy.
Well, they were wrong
I was in Florida on vacation watching on a small TV while logged on to Free Republic via a telephone line and hoping the charges didnot get billed.
In one of his best efforts, A+bert posted the thread “Relax, we are now at war” That post was very early on and had many many responses.
I had it on my saved posts and have reposted it nearly year but can’t find it today.
Yes. They were.
Without Colonel Rick Riscorla the casualties on 9/11 would have been double, over 5,000.
I have some of those posts. It makes me smile when I can find it later and replay it.
This is not an individual effort. But it is incredible what the associations here can do to bow away the ComDem lies and spin.
Have seen it many times. Not a single individual, but a joint effort. One feeds on the comments of another.
It hurts me when we have dividers who try to break that power.
Riscorla = Rescorla
I’ve know some of them.
The house I live in was purchased from the widow of one, he was my friend and my father’s friend.
He came in behind the lines on Normandy with the 101st in a glider, jumped into Holland and was trucked into the Bulge.
Tears, thinking about him. They must always be remembered.
They are what will help the US survive.
I’ve not read that. Thanks, will look.
