Today I noticed an article in the US Army website about a statue of Col. Rick Rescorla, USA (Ret.) that will be unveiled this week. Army.mil linky Colonel Rescorla was from Cornwall, served in the British Army and the Metropolitan Police before he emigrated to the US. He was decorated for his heroism in Vietnam. Upon retirement from the Army he became Vice-President for security at Morgan Stanley. I understand that he was regarded as a bit of a paranoid pain in the arrse for insisting on evacuation drills in case of terrorist attack. On 9/11 (or 11/9 as you prefer) he was responsible for saving the lives of over 2700 Morgan Stanley employees. A true hero in my opinion and deserving of this honour. The article does not mention his British background. Rick, Dyw genes!
