When cell phones failed on Sept. 11, 2001, one couple turned to paper and pen to reach each other in the parking lot of the Pentagon, where they both worked.
Amid the chaos of the day, Daria "Chip" Gaillard wrote this to her husband Franklin with assurances of love and safety. After they found each other, the Gaillards moved to protect children at the Pentagon daycare center.
They survived the terrorist attack, as did this letter, which is in our National Museum of American History's collection. #9/11 #september11 #heroes #neverforget #love #bravery #survive
