Adm Loy Remembers 9-11

The US Naval Institute News service has a short story about the evacuation of more than half a million people from Southern Manhattan following the attack on 9-11 as told by former Commandant James Loy. Apparently this is part of much larger oral history project.

Based on 15 interviews conducted by Paul Stillwell from August 2002 to August 2006. The volume contains 621 pages of interview transcript plus appendices and a comprehensive index. The transcript is copyright 2014 by the U.S. Naval Institute; the interviewee placed no restrictions on its use.

I’ve posted the video above before, but it is an excellent tribute to the spirit of those that responded so unselfishly to this attack.

  1. Wow. The CG deservedly should take immense pride in this action.

    As a fan of history I knew this event happened and was big, but I had no idea of the scale. I will definitely have to read more about this.

    I hope the COTP was recognized and that the appropriate unit and personal awards were conferred.
