Lt. Col. Robert Darling Tells What It Was Like Inside the White House on 9/11

Lt. Col. Robert J. Darling, author of 24 Hours inside the President’s Bunker

Lt. Colonel Robert Darling, had a first-hand perspective inside the White House on 9/11 as the tragedy occurred. Nearly 3,000 Americans lost their lives as a result of the attacks, and the vivid memories of that day are seared into his consciousness.

Trained as an Attack Helicopter pilot and serving in two wars, Bob became a flight instructor and then a personal helicopter pilot to President Bill Clinton. He remained in his role as a member of HMX-1, the President’s personal helicopter pilot corps, into President George W. Bush’s administration.

After retiring from the Marines in 2007, Bob wrote a book about his experiences and recollections from 9/11 from inside the White House. The book is titled,  24 Hours inside the President’s Bunker: 9-11-01: The White House.

Often, I will write about an interview and what we discussed. This interview speaks for itself, however. Listening to the stories of heroism, personal sacrifice and dedication renews one’s belief in America.
