Staff Sergeant Maudlyn White
Attack Location: Pentagon
Home: Arlington, Virgina
Army Staff Sgt. Maudlyn White, 38, was confirmed dead yesterday by the Department of Defense.
White, who was born in St. Croix, lived in Arlington and had a 5-year-old daughter and four brothers and sisters. White's stepfather, Richard Irish, declined to talk to a Washington Post
reporter. But in an interview with the Virgin Islands Daily News, he and White's friends described her as a quiet person who was independent.
“She likes to do things her own way, and that's why she joined the Army,” Irish said.

NOTE: Sergeant White was laid to rest in Section 64 of Arlington National Cemetery, in the shadows of the Pentagon.
Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history. Many of his articles can be found on renowned portals like the New York Times, Washingtonpost or Wikipedia.
