Meg Falk, Department of Defense advocate for families after 9/11 attacks, dies

Meg Falk, who served as the director of the Office of Family Policy at the Pentagon, survived the terrorist attack on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, and opened an assistance center for victims’ families on the morning of September 12, has died at the age of 71.

Emily Langer of The Washington Post, writes of  Falk’s compassion and concern for the families of September 11th and families of fallen military personnel.

Jim Laychak, brother of Pentagon victim David Laychak, said of her, “I’m sure every family member has stories of Meg helping them.. She had a sense about her to know who needed what comforting and when. . . . She was always there, always helping out.”
