Alexandria, VA – After Flight 77 slammed into the Pentagon, thousands in the DMV were caught in gridlocked traffic trying to get away, to get home. For many, a lasting memory is the steady stream of emergency vehicles from surrounding communities speeding toward the Pentagon and the District, lit up with sirens blaring. No one knew then if Congress and the White House would be the next targets.
Alexandria police and firefighters were among the first responders who ran toward disaster while we tried to escape it. Zebra recognizes here members of the Alexandria Police and Sheriff’s departments who responded to the Pentagon and continue to serve our community in 2021.
