DOD RELEASES REVISED ESTIMATE OF UNACCOUNTED

The Department of Defense announced today a revised estimate of the number of personnel unaccounted for in Tuesday's attack on the Pentagon.

These numbers do not include any of the estimated 64 passengers on American Airlines Flight #77.

Army:

  • 21 Military
  • 47 Army Civilians
  • 6 Contractors

Navy:

  • 33 Military
  • 9 Navy Civilians
