No funds to help Pentagon survivors of 9/11 attack

In 2015, after much struggle, Congress extended the James L. Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act which assists ill recovery workers and survivors of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City. But survivors of the terrorist attack on the Pentagon do not have access to the fund.

Peggy Fox of WUSA9 tells the story of Pentagon survivor Amy West, who worked for LockHeed Martin as a civilian contractor in the Pentagon and suffers from PTSD.
