Maudlyn White – Sergeant, United States Army


Staff Sergeant Maudlyn White

Attack Location: Pentagon
Age: 38
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.
