GIVEAWAY - 9/11 Inside the Pentagon DVD {ends 8/28}

9/11 Inside the Pentagon will be released on September 6th, but one of my lucky blog readers can win it here before that.

I was a freshman in high school when the events of 9/11 happened, and I still remember the day vividly. This DVD focuses on the events that happened at the Pentagon that day, vs. the NYC events, and it looks like it will be very interesting.

More about the movie:
PBS Distribution announced they will be releasing “9/11 INSIDE THE PENTAGON” on DVD. America marks the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the U.S. with this new documentary which reveals new, first-hand accounts of the attack that took place at the heart of the US’ military headquarters – an attack in which 184 people from inside the building and on board American Airlines flight 77 perished.

“9/11 INSIDE THE PENTAGON” will be available on DVD September 6, 2016. The run time of the program is approximately 60 minutes and the SRP is $24.99. The program will also be available for digital download.

While most of the media coverage of the events of September 11 focused on New York City and United Flight 93, the story of what happened inside the Pentagon on that tragic day has never truly been told, until now.

Produced by Lone Wolf Media, “9/11 INSIDE THE PENTAGON” revisits the events of 9/11 from the perspective of those who were in Washington, DC, working at or near the Pentagon. Using exclusive first-person interviews with Pentagon personnel, first responders, aviation experts and journalists, as well as rarely seen Department of Defense footage taken from inside the Pentagon after the attack, the special tells the story of heroism and perseverance in the face of unimaginable, life-threatening obstacles.

Unlike those in New York City who were completely taken by surprise, those in Washington, DC, followed the news coming out of New York and realized than unaccounted-for flights still in the air would likely target significant, symbolic and strategic sites in the nation’s capital – including the Pentagon.

In the chaos that followed after Flight 77 struck the Pentagon, a group of workers inside would crawl through black smoke and pools of jet fuel looking for an exit, only to find themselves trapped behind a newly installed blast-proof window that was impossible to break open; emotional clashes over jurisdiction would break out between Pentagon personnel and first responders trying to find survivors in the wreckage; smoke would threaten to incapacitate the National Military Command Center; and an unaccounted-for plane would pose the threat of yet another strike.

Among those interviewed in the film are those who experience the attack first-hand: Steve Carter, assistant building operations manager at the Pentagon; first responders Mike Regan, Alan Wallace and Ed Hannon; Pentagon personnel Captain William J. Toti (U.S. Navy, retired) and Colonel Marilyn Wills (US Army, retired); air traffic controller Colin Scoggins; structural engineer Leo Titus; and Washington Post reporter Steve Vogel.

“9/11 INSIDE THE PENTAGON” is a production of Lone Wolf Media and executive produced by Kirk Wolfinger.
