Roster Change

The plane that crashed into the side of the Pentagon one week ago has taken a toll on the Navy's information technology team. At least 11 of the 34 Navy personnel still unaccounted for are IT workers.

The Defense Department published a list Sept. 13 of the 42 enlisted personnel and civilian contractors who are still missing in the wake of the Sept. 11 attack. The list does not include job titles for everybody, but at least 11 people have IT jobs.

In addition, three employees from contractor Booz-Allen & Hamilton Inc., who were briefing a client at the Pentagon last week, died when a hijacked passenger jet crashed into the military facility, a company spokeswoman said Sept. 14.
