On June 9, 2014, as part of the Israel Bonds Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C., we visited the Pentagon where we had a private tour and then participated in a high level briefing from Lt. General Michael S. Linnington, U.S. Army.  The General is an extraordinary man with a keen insight into world affairs and a person with a warm and caring heart. Our country is indeed in good care with men like the General leading our military.

The tour was extremely interesting and very emotional as we also had the privilege to tour the area that was destroyed and rebuilt from the 911 terrorist attack on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

We also gained access to the private  911 Memorial Chappel and the museum area that was set up at the Pentagon to pay respects and remembrance to all those who died in this terrible and vicious attack .

Our group also laid a wreath at the 911 Memorial at the Pentagon in a very emotional ceremony.
