The remains of
a Ricks college
alumnus who was
working as an
intern in the
the building Sept.
11 were identified
26, was in the
area of the Pentagon that was struck
by a hijacked American Airlines 757
plane. He was working as an Intern
with Navy intelligence, Lanae Poulter,
of BYU-Idaho Public Relations said.
Monday afternoon the Howells
received word that Brady's remains
had been retrieved and identified.
Ken and Jeanette Howell, Brady's
parents, were on their way to Sugar
City, Idaho, to report their mission
with The Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints when the attack
occurred. They served at the St.
George visitors center.
When the family was first notified,
they didn't know if he was a burned
victim in a hospital, or if he was still in
the building. The Navy assigned an
individual to look for Howell where
there were originally 14 people missing
in his division Poulter said.
The Navy met with the families of
those missing on Friday and in the
debriefing explained where the people
who are missing had been when the
plane hit, and the degree of the ongoing
fire since the attack. Based on the
evidence presented at the meeting, the
family came to a realization that
Brady was gone, Poulter said.
Ken and Jeanette flew to
Washington D.C. on Friday to be with
Brady's wife Liz, Poulter said. Their
flight with Nuskin International was
the first corporate jet to leave Salt
Lake City since the attack on Tuesday.
KUTV Channel 2 reported.
The family had previously arranged
for an open house for Howell's
younger brother, Carson, who was
married in May. Both the open house
and the mission report have been postponed,
Funeral services will be held on
Sept. 24 at 1 p.m. at the Sugar City
Stake Center of the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints. Friends
can meet with the family on Sept. 23
from 6 to 8 p.m.
Howell received his associates
degree in Political Science from Ricks
College. He went on to receive his
bachelor's degree from Utah State
University and his master's degree in
Syracuse, New York, both in Political
Science, Poulter said.
A NATION UNITES
THE SHOCK WAVES FROM LAST TUESDAY'S TERRORIST ATTACK
ON THE WORLD TRADE CENTER AND THE PENTAGON
HAVE BEEN FELT AROUND THE WORLD.
REXBURG HAS RESPONDED WITH FAITH, PRAYERS AND PATRIOTISM.
at a g(ance
Members of various faiths gathered
Sunday at the old Latter-day Saint
Tabernacle in Rexburg for a community
interfaith memorial service to honor those
that died during the attack on the World
Trade Centers and the Pentagon.
Reverend Donald Hammer, pastor for the
Upper Valley Assembly of God, Garth
Olsen, stake president of the Rexburg East
Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints, and the City of Rexburg
organized the service.
Hammer said that Tuesday as he was
praying he felt that there should be some
sort of memorial service. He said the
thought came back to him Wednesday
morning and that the Lord must be telling
him something. He later contacted other
religious leaders in the community and
organized the event.
Both Hammer and Olsen spoke to the
congregation about the recent events and the
role that God plays in people's lives and
how people should support the government.
"As we greave we can be comforted by
God and by the words he speaks to us"
Both men expressed their hope that this
tragedy would bring the nation back to God
and bring the community closer together.
Sentiments were echoed by members of the
" I think tragedy is a time when we have to
forget differences and come together as people"
Darwin Wolford, a resident of
Olsen offered remarks about the tragedy,
saying that as well as having faith in God,
we need to have faith in our country and its
leaders. He also spoke about past leaders
who prayed to God for direction. He stated
that Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address
and Theodore Roosevelt's prayer to the
nation before D-Day apply to us today as the
nation honors and mourns those that died.
Hammer offered the meeting's message
of comfort and hope, saying that each generation
faces its own defining moments. He
gave the example of his grandfather who
worked during WWII when Pearl Harbor
was bombed. His parents worked to protect
civil rights during the life of Martin Luther
King. Jr. He called Tuesday's attack this
generation's "wake-up call." He went on to
say that it is how we respond to these
events that define us as people.
Hammer told the congregation that it is
all right to ask God why things happen in
life and that even Jesus asked "why?"
when he was dying on the cross. He also
said that members of the community
should pray for help, understanding and
that if we do go to war, the war will be just
and that our soldiers will be protected.
