Rich Guadagno was a career Service employee and devoted conservationist. He was one of the heroic passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 on September 11, 2001, who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect others. On the anniversary of the tragic attacks that have shaped our country’s history, we honor and remember our fellow public servant. Guadagno, who spent much of his career in the Northeast Region, would have turned 50 this month. A pavilion will be dedicated in his memory September 29 at Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in New Jersey, where he first joined the Service.
