After a lifetime in which he cheated it many times, death caught up with Rick Rescorla halfway up the south tower of the World Trade Center. But like a good soldier, he didn’t sell his life cheaply. Death took him only after he had cheated it again, helping to save 2,700 lives by relying on the instincts and the preparation that had served him well in battles on two continents.

The definition of bravery: "Going up when everyone else is going down..." Thanks to Rick Rescorla and all the brave men and women who died trying to save the innocent civilians in the twin towers. - CD

Lord Have Mercy, but that fellow was a brave man indeed. If any of those 2,700 folks ever have a male offspring in their families in the next, say, 100 years, that boy's name should be Rick Rescorla ________, whatever! Eric The(Bereaved)Hun[>]:)]

"“He’d take every possible contingency that could happen, and he’d come up with a plan for it,” Hill said. When the first plane hit the north tower, the Port Authority told workers in the south tower to stay put. But Rescorla disagreed and immediately executed an evacuation plan he had made the employees rehearse twice a year." This is a hero in every sense of the word. Many Morgan Stanley employees are alive and owe this man a debt of gratitude. A true hero indeed.

He was a soldier.
