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

Defense Agencies: 9

Total estimate is now 125. The original estimate for Defense Agencies was 10, which inadvertantly included one DoD employee on American Airlines Flight #77, Mr. Bryan C. Jack.

All names of those who remain unaccounted for have been released. For Army personnel, see http://www.defenselink.mil/releases/2001/b09142001_bt428-01.html.
