Rick was a retired US Army officer and he was so dedicated to his new job that he took measurements for his co-workers’ safety by training World Trade Center employees in emergency basis. Not only that, he also wrote a letter to the government, concerning the fact that the building’s foundation and basement should be secured with thicker walls and more guards, predicting that it would be open to potential attack.

When the disastrous events began, he ignored the Port Authority’s instructions to not evacuate, and lead the evacuation, saving all but seven of Morgan Stanley’s 2,687 employees. He died at age of 62 in the towers while leading people out of the debris.
