DENVER – A University of Denver professor is sharing his story of survival on the 14th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Philip Beaver was in the Pentagon when American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the building. He lost 28 colleagues in his office.

“I had 29 years in uniform and one bad day. That was my one bad day,” the retired U.S. Army Colonel told 7NEWS Anchor Anne McNamara in his first television interview about 9/11.

Every year, Beaver starts his day with emails to other survivors, messages expressing gratitude their lives were spared. Beaver, who now teaches business analytics at the University of Denver, said he has come a long way from that dark day.
