Suzanne Bucci arrived at the Pentagon early on Sept. 11, 2001, for a job interview. She hoped to work as a nurse there while her husband, Steven Bucci, was serving as military assistant to Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld. 

Bucci had not completed the interview process before hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the west side of the Pentagon, killing all 64 aboard and another 125 in the building. She spent the rest of the day using her experience and skills to help those wounded or dying in the terrorist attack.  

Bucci, whose husband is now a visiting fellow at The Heritage Foundation, joins the “Problematic Women” podcast to recall the events at the Pentagon on 9/11 as we commemorate the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on America. 

Also on today’s show, we explain how Texas’ new pro-life law protects children in the womb, and the left’s strong opposition to it. We also celebrate the start of a new school year and crown our Problematic Women of the Week.
