Marvin R. Woods 9/11/01

I have the honor of paying tribute to Marvin Woods. He was killed in the Pentagon on September 11th. Marvin Roger Woods, the son of a sailor, enlisted in the Navy when he was in high school and went on to serve for 23 years. When he retired from the Navy in 1984, he took a six-week vacation, then reported back to his office at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station and continued in his job as director of communications, but as a civilian. He liked to hunt and fish and work in his woodshop behind the couple's southern Maryland home. Left behind was his wife and three kids. He was 58 years old. According to his wife, Betty, he loved his country and would want Americans to stand together against terrorism.
