Twenty years has not lessened the impact of the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001 for a great many Americans. One of those Americans is Mark Schoenrock. Today, Schoenrock is a County Commissioner for Jefferson County and sits on various local boards. On that fateful day, however, Lt. Colonel Schoenrock was serving as the State of Colorado Inspector General and he happened to be at the Pentagon when a commercial jet airliner hijacked by terrorists was flown into the Pentagon building. Schoenrock, himself, was not hurt but said he was less than a football field length away from the blast caused when the plane, which had an almost full tank of fuel, struck the building and exploded.\nFriday morning, September 10, Schoenrock spoke to an auditorium full of students about that day at the Fairbury High School to discuss his experiences on that day as well as his time in the military.
