Badass of the Week: Rick Rescorla, after a career of badassery including moving to the US so he could enlist in Vietnam, he was already a hero. On 9/11, despite the fact that he was dying from terminal bone marrow cancer, he went back to his old standby of singing British folk songs to rally morale. He was last seen on the tenth floor of the World Trade Center, headed up. Of the 2,700 people he had been charged with protecting, all but 6 survived the terrorist attack.
True heroism. How did he know, though????? (I saw a documentary about this gentleman, & he figured out a few years before that planes might be the next method of attack, after he analyzed the previous bombing in One WTC some years earlier by the van parked in the then-parking garage.)
Rick Rescorla: The Hero Who Saved 2,700 Lives on 9/11 - he began the orderly evacuation of Morgan Stanley's 2,700 employees on twenty floors of World Trade Center Tower 2, and 1,000 employees in WTC 5.
