Virginia National Guard remembers
BLACKSTONE, Va. - The Virginia National Guard took time today to remember those lost in the tragedy of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The solemn remembrance began with the dedication this morning of the United States Property and Fiscal Office conference room to Ms. Peggie M. Hurt, 36, of Crewe, Va. Hurt, an accountant for the U. S. Army, was one of 189 people killed on September 11, 2001 when American Airlines flight 77 slammed into the Pentagon.
Hurt was more than an accountant for the Army though. She was an associate,
a co-worker and most importantly a friend to many here at the Virginia
National Guard United States Property and Fiscal Office and Fort Pickett.
She had worked for the Virginia National Guard for several years before
moving to Northern Virginia. She went from her position with the Virginia
National Guard to the Army National Guard Readiness Center in Arlington
and from there to her job in the Pentagon as an Army accountant. In
fact, she moved to that job only two weeks before the terrorist attack.
