Project 2996 – Sharon Carver Orginally Posted 9/11/10

On September 11, 2001 Sharon Carver was sitting in her office at the Pentagon when a hijacked plane hit the building killing her.  She was only 38 years old.  She was civilian accountant for the Army while working towards her master’s degree in accounting.  She lived with her family in Waldorf, MD.  The days after the attack her nephew was interviewed by the local news, they were still holding out hope that she survived the attack. One of many heartbreaking scenes that played out for days afterwards. 

A life that was cut too short.  A life that will not include grandchildren or growing old.  A life that will no longer include the annual family vacations.  She was days back from a family outing to Disney World. A family is now missing a loving daughter, sister, and aunt.  The Pentagon is missing a dedicated employee, and her friends are missing her personality, her humor, and that amazing smile of hers. 

Sharon believed in education and public service.  Traits that we should all aspire to.  She was dedicated to her family and her country. 

“You are truly missed. I remember your kind and warm spirit. You brightened the halls of Anacostia with your smile.”


To Sharon’s family, there are no words to express our sympathies to you.  May God Bless you and know that Sharon is watching over you and smiling.
