I am participating in Project 2,996, the blogosphere’s tribute to those murdered on 9/11 eight years ago today.

My honoree is John J. Chada. He was 55 and a civilian employee for the U.S. Army. Chada lived in Manassas, Va., and was killed at the Pentagon. He worked in the Information Management Support Center as Administrative Assistant to the Secretary of the Army. He is survived by his wife.

The Virginia House of Delegates honored him with a resolution in 2002:

Celebrating the life of John J. Chada.

Agreed to by the House of Delegates, February 7, 2002
Agreed to by the Senate, February 14, 2002

WHEREAS, on September 11, 2001, terrorists launched a violent attack on the United States, causing great destruction and horrible human suffering in New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania; and

WHEREAS, the attack had a devastating effect in Virginia, home of the Pentagon and of many of the personnel, military and civilian, who served there; and

WHEREAS, among the victims of the Pentagon attack was John J. Chada of Manassas, an administrative assistant for the Department of Defense Information Management Support Center; and

WHEREAS, retired from the United States Army, John Chada served two tours of duty in Vietnam, and during his long military career served in both the United States Army and the United States Navy; and

WHEREAS, a devoted family man, John Chada was a longtime member of the Moose Lodge in Manassas, which he served as president, governor, junior governor, and many other offices; and

WHEREAS, a native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, John Chada was a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and was a member of the American Legion; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED by the House of Delegates, the Senate concurring, That the General Assembly note with sadness the loss of John J. Chada, a victim of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the United States; and, be it

RESOLVED FURTHER, That the Clerk of the House of Delegates prepare a copy of this resolution for presentation to the family of John J. Chada as an expression of the heartfelt condolences of the General Assembly of Virginia.

We will never forget.
