    This President is like none other and has seemingly unlimited energy. The right man at the right time, against all odds. Ok, yes, this smacks of FanGirl-ism. More than fine with me. 😉🇺🇸

      I am placing my bets on President Trump and the American people.

      The Democrat Communists and Uniparty is beyond anything acceptable in America. It will be a long process. Simply cannot have a representative Republic that is not serving the people.

      Oh, and one other big thing – GOD PUT HIM THERE FOR A REASON.

    Why the he’ll hadn’t Rick gotten this before? I’ve known his story for years and previous Presidents didn’t do this?

    Very well deserved… and he was an immigrant. What he did did literally save thousands.

      Found one down lower–never mind. I like to know these things are sourced before passing them along.

      If anyone on President Trump’s team is watching here, tell him thank you.

      Then let’s get all the truth about that disgusting set of events out in the open. ALL the malefactors. ALL the evil. Awakening and reckoning, all deeds lain open to the light.

      Archangel Michael protect our President. And may the day come when all Americans can witness to their heroes freely and openly, without fear of punishment, and in open discourse and manly/mature interaction. I am so sick of this rule by the Adversary, and his roiled-up hordes of weaklings.

    How fitting that President Trump should be here for such a time and be given the honor to present this honor. He was there that day. The horror. Shame on Bush and O for not presenting this honor before, but, it’s more meaningful that PDJT award it.

      Rescorla was also a US Army veteran of the Battle of Ia Drang Valley, the first major battle in RVN against PAVN forces. He was British born and a ex-Brit Paratrooper.

    LT Rick Rescorla’s picture is on the cover of LTG Hal Moore’s book, “We Were Soldiers Once . . . And Young,” written with Joe Galloway, about the Ia Drand Valley fight. It became the Mel Gibson movie.

      Me too Need24. I am not ashamed to admit that I too wept while watching this wonderful tribute to an incredible American HERO.

      And isn’t it wonderful to know that this Country can produce such incredible people like Mr. Rescorla which more than counter the slime buckets of filth that currently are the Democrat Party?

      Pelosi, Schiff, Clintons, Obamas: YOU ARE ALL GARBAGE compared to this wonderful American Rick Rescorla. There are no medals, no commendation for your attempts to DESTROY our wonderful Country.

      Your fate awaits you all & it ain’t the Pearly Gates baby!!

    Amazing care he took of the widow. Making sure she got up and down of the various steps.

    Given the wait was so long, I’d guessed he was meeting with the family. I don’t think DJT keeps to a timetable when he does that.

    Even if it is posthumously, Colonel Rescorla, my Army Brother, should have been presented with The Presidential Medal of Freedom over a decade ago. Neither Bush 43 or Obama, had the decency to do so. The man is truly a Hero in every sense of the word. He is directly responsible for saving thousands of lives on 11 September, 2001. That brave acts of heroism by this man on 11 September, 2001, have been overlooked for far too long and that is something that has deeply bothered me for a very long time.

    Had Dean Witter/Morgan Stanley listened to him after his initial assessment about the basement parking garage being an easy target, there might never have been a first bombing in that very garage back in 1993. He also correctly predicted that the buildings were a target for an aircraft to be flown into, and wanted Morgan Stanley to move their offices out of that area and over to New Jersey. Too bad they didn’t listen, but at least he had the control he needed as the director of corporate security, the type of control where he made all employees practice fire drills every three months. It was because of his emergency planning, that so many people got of that building safely on 11 September, 2001.

    Colonel Rescorla ordered all employees out of the south tower at the WTC, right after the north tower was struck by a commercial aircraft, even though he was told that the crash was an accident and the south tower didn’t need to be evacuated. Thank goodness he didn’t listen and instead relied on instinct, that gut instinct that saved almost 3,000 people and the same gut instinct that kept many of his soldiers alive on the battlefields of Vietnam.

    Although I am glad that Colonel Rescorla’s family is being presented with the Presidential Citizens Medal awarded to Colonel Rescorla, he rightfully deserves to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom. At least the medal presented today is start of the recognition long overdue for this hero.

    Rest In Peace up there on Heaven’s Eternal Watch, Colonel Rescorla, my beloved Army Brother. You may be gone, but you will never be forgotten.

    • As he saved them, he told them “This is a day to be proud to be an American.”–a nation that attracted a Rick Rescorla, who understood completely the lesson of the first WTC attack, when no one else wanted to. And died in harness, pulling others to life.

      A wonderful tribute to Mr. Rescorla Mr. T. And indeed he was the “best of the best” as you not Crewdog. I do remember the History Channel’s excellent documentary on Mr. Rescorla too. It is a must watch especially for those too young to remember or born after 9/11.

      WE MUST NEVER FORGET & WE MUST ALWAYS REMEMBER TO HONOR ALL WHOSE COURAGE & BRAVERY SAVED SO MANY ON THAT DAY!!

      Well said Mr T.! I agree 100%. Joe Friggin’ Biden was given the Medal of Freedom! To be honest, the Medal of Freedom isn’t enough of an award. An award should have been created for him that better exemplifies his sacrifice.

      Col Rescorla went back in after saving MS knowing he would not be coming out alive and I believe that is why he called his wife. It was his goodbye.

      His biography should be required reading in American high schools.

      He gave his adopted country everything he had, including his life. Truly amazing man.

        His going back in was in complete accord w/LTCOL Moore dictum for one in a leadership position to never leave ANYONE behind – he had actually gotten out of the building but went back up to be absolutely sure. One of his staff went with him. Neither returned. LTCOL Moore’s training was taken to heart by this man.

      In 1964 at the Battle of Ia Drang in Viet Nam the US forces were vastly outnumbered and being overrun. A reinforcement Company (B, I believe) was helo’d in led by a lt Rick Rescorla.
      Rescorla was a Welsh immigrant that had been in the English Military and then South African and Rhodesian (If I recall correctly)
      Sizing up the situation, Rescorla used cover of night to walk up Ia Drang, see where the US defenses were, and where the Viet Nam offenses were staging.
      He came down, pulled back our defenses to more compact positions that sealed the gaps, and achieved a victory in the US first engagement in the Viet Nam war.
      Then as the US forces marched back to our lines they were again overrun, and Rescorla was sent back and did a similar thing to rescue the US forces.
      (All of this is in the book “We Were Soldiers Once and Young.” Its a shame the Rescorla Character did not make even a cameo in the movie We were Soldiers, although there were plenty of other Heros that were.)
      Anyway Rescorla Went to school became a professor of History, taught for years, and then ended up at Morgan Stanley. When the Towers were attacked by a truck bomb in the parking garage basement, Rescorla told his assembled staff, “They can see that won’t work, next time they will come from above.” He then implemented evac drills that saved most of the MS staff.
      Rescorla Died at the Towers that day when after he saw all MS employees were out, he and two volunteers went back to search for stragglers.
      I remember reading about his death on 9-11 and thinking, “Is that the same guy?!” I researched and found that it was. Most folks never connect the two, but it is obvious Rescorla was a hero his entire life.

    I also wonder why the Citizenship Medal, instead the Medal of Honor. I’m sure there is a reason.

    The only thing that comes to mind is MoF can be given to a non-citizen, where as this can’t.

    I truly feel President Trump is cleaning the swamp from 9/11 forward. This is the moment that made him realize that he would be President. He lost so many friends on 9/11 any nothing has been done. He will avenge their murders. The Deep State knows he is coming for them.

      SuperElite: As your name suggests, we are the Elite in every way. We stand for all that is true, noble, good, honorable, moral, right, and free. They stand for none of that.

      PDJT is exposing them – warts and all. We are seeing how despicable the DC Dwellers are and it ain’t pretty. I don’t think they have figured out yet that their glory days are over – they have been unmasked.
