126 Unaccounted For at Pentagon

Thursday, 13 September 2001 12:00 AM

The Army lost 74 people, including 47 civilians and 21 military. Six contractors are also missing.

The Navy lost 33 military personnel and nine civilians. Defense agencies can not account for 10 people.

No names have been released, but Capitol Hill and Army sources say Lt. Gen. Timothy Maude, who was the deputy chief of staff for personnel in the Army, was among those killed. He was attending a meeting in a conference room near the area of impact. He had recently moved his office to the outer ring where the plane hit.

The Pentagon is undergoing a 10-year, multi-billion-dollar renovation program. The impact area is part of the first new "wedge" to be renovated, so some of the offices were not yet occupied. The area immediately adjacent was also less occupied than normal as people were moving out of the area in advance of the second wedge renovation.

The death toll from the Pentagon attack will rise, however. The Pentagon's numbers don't include the passengers and crews on the American Airlines aircraft that rammed the building. Also not included in the estimate are a number of schoolchildren who were touring the Pentagon with some of their parents.
