Dr. James Geiling remembers 9/11
When the United Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the west side of the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, Dr. James Geiling was not in the building, but his staff was. They were among the first responders to the terrorist attack on the Pentagon. When Geiling, then the commander of the medical clinic at the Pentagon, finally made it to the scene, he found that the emergency response was working as well as anyone could have anticipated. "That's one of my most poignant memories--and proudest moments," he recalled in an interview with Dartmouth Medicine magazine. Geiling also agreed to share his story and reflections on 9/11 on camera, in a video produced by the Dartmouth College Office of Public Affairs.
