SEPTEMBER 11 MEMORIAL
The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, marked the first time that DIA employees were killed in the line of duty in the United States, and resulted in the largest single loss of Agency lives. Rosa Chapa, Sandra Foster, Robert Hymel, Shelley Marshall, Patricia Mickley, Charles Sabin and Karl Teepe died when a hijacked aircraft crashed into the outer ring of the Pentagon. On September 11, 2009, DIA dedicated a memorial to those fallen Agency employees. The memorial is located in the garden at DIA Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
These are just a few of DIA's fallen heroes. Their sacrifice brings honor to their country, to their colleagues and to themselves, and the Patriots Memorial ensures that their memory lives on.
