Montevideo grad was near Pentagon on 9/11, helped wounded
Andy Sampson should have been studying that day in late 2005, but he needed to write. Once he started he couldn't stop.
What resulted was a 2,000-word essay detailing the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, when he was a 19-year-old lance corporal serving in the Marine Corps Headquarters communications center next door to the Pentagon.
The Montevideo graduate says now that his writing helped cut down on the nightmares he was having about that day and its aftermath.
