Reflecting on the Pentagon attack: Clara City native was 100 feet from impact: Personal changes

Email

Jeff Caspers was working in his office at the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, when an airplane that had been hijacked by terrorists slammed into the building.

The then Marine Colonel, who is a 1975 graduate from Clara City, was just 100 feet away from the point of impact.

In a telephone interview later that day, Caspers said he heard a "massive blast" and felt the building "shake and quiver."
