                        HON. CAROLYN B. MALONEY

                              of new york

                       Thursday, December 9, 2004

  Mrs. MALONEY. Mr. Speaker, earlier, I had an opportunity to praise 
the work of the 9/11 Family Steering Committee and of the ``leaders in 
Congress that has allowed the Congress to vote on and pass the 
Conference Report to S. 2845, which is the legislation that will enact 
the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission. While it would be nearly 
impossible to thank and recognize everyone that played a part in its 
passing, I would like to recognize the hard work of two 9/11 Pentagon 
family members, Abraham Scott and Rosemary Dillard.
  Over the last several months these two individuals have been a 
constant presence on the Hill fighting for the implementation of 
intelligence reform. During this time I have had a chance to get to 
know these two remarkable individuals and I would like to share with 
you a little bit about them.
  Abraham Scott, lost his wife of 24 years, Janice Marie, who was 
working in the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Everyday that Abe has 
traveled to the Hill, I have always been touched by the pictures of his 
family and his wife. He speaks fondly of his children and he speaks 
lovingly of his wife.
  Rosemary Dillard lost her husband, Eddie A. Dillard, who was on 
flight 77 that struck the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Ms. Dillard, 
as a retired flight attendant manager for American Airlines also lost a 
crew of flight attendants that she managed.
  I cannot imagine the grief and loss that these two individuals have 
had to endure, but I am honored to have had the opportunity to know 
them and work with them in fighting for the passage of the 9/11 
Commission's recommendations. Both of them know that we still have work 
to do to ensure that our Nation will be safe from future terrorist 
attacks and I look forward to the opportunity to working with them 
again.
