As we near the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. It’s a time for reflection for many. One high ranking Oregon military official was at the Pentagon when the plane hit the building. Now retired, Alex Bergen was a Major General in the Oregon National Guard. He was sitting in a committee meeting at the Pentagon when it hit: “And we were about two corridors down when it hit, but we didn’t really know what had happened. It felt like an earthquake to me. And then they came in and told us what had happened. There’d been a couple planes flown into the World Trade Center and they didn’t really know what happened in the Pentagon, they just know they had an event. So we evacuated the building.”  He was forced to walk back to his hotel that day because the gridlock in D.C. was that bad.
