This article is about Rick Rescorla being awarded the Presidential Citizen’s Medal. He was the Senior Vice President for Corporate Security at Morgan Stanley in the World Trade Center on September 11th and helped saved thousands of lives. He was also a veteran, serving in the British SAS, North Rhodesian police, and then the US Army, where he earned a Silver Star in the Ia Drang campaign made famous in the book “We Were Soldiers Once...And Young”. The article is written by Jim Morris, a Green Beret who served three tours in Vietnam and was friend of Rescorla’s.
