One of the names we remember today is Rick Rescorla an American hero who gave everything on September 11, 2001, to save all his co-workers in the World Trade Center attacks. Originally a British soldier hailing from Hayle, Cornwall who joined the U.S. Army to serve in Vietnam and ultimately was a security officer for Morgan Stanley. Rescorla got all of his fellow employees out of the South Tower before it fell.
