"Instincts took over the second the airplane hit the Pentagon. We immediately picked up truckloads of field medical equipment and sent them up to McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey, and set up a field hospital to ferry wounded back and forth. But as it turned out, of course, there weren't very many wounded. Most of them—the people in the building—were killed. So, that setup ended up being the FEMA headquarters for much of their operation. We had a place for them to move right into. We then started with the planning operations to figure out who did this and what we were going to do about it."
