Remember LTC(P) David Scales on this 8th anniversary of 9-11. David and I worked in the same office together (US Army Reserve Force Programs) at Jefferson Plaza 2, in Crystal City (Office of the Chief, Army Reserve) in 2000. Before he left Force Programs, I remember David saying how much he was looking forward to starting his new job in the Pentagon in the Army G-1 Office. He was a true "Officer and a Gentleman." I will never forget his friendship and his willingness to mentor junior officers. With his strong background in Personnel Administration and experience, having served on many officer promotion boards, he helped me put together my own promotion packet for my "LTC" promotion board. I was subsequently selected for promotion and pinned on my silver oak leaf a month after 9-11. I owe a debt of gratitude to LTC (P) David Scales, whose life was taken from us so suddenly and at a very young age. He is one of the many heroes of 9-11 who will never be forgotten. Rest in peace, my friend.

I remember David as a young LT who worked for me in C Company, 2d Medical Battion, 2 Infantry Div in Korea 1979-1980. He was a dedicated and enthusiastic officer. But I will never forget how accomplished he was as a pianist. He worked hard to be successful as an officer and did not deserve to leave us so quickly. My prayers go out to his family.

You are still remembered old friend. I'll never forget the good times in Jr. High and High School in East Liverpool, before your family moved. I am proud you were my CO in Civil Air Patrol. Sleep Well HERO.

David was a gentle and generous musician that I had the priveledge of meeting at a song camp in Virginia. His presence and ability to play his compositions on the piano so beautifully was inspiring to everyone there who met and heard him in my opinion. I invited David to come to my home and play some music with me. What a creative, joyous sound came from the piano as David let the talent and joy in his heart flow onto the keys and strings of the piano. He spoke fondly of his family. He is missed by many as a good person and wonderful musician.

A memorial is being constructed in Lynchburg, Virginia at The American Legion Post 16, where Lt. Col. David M. Scales' father is a member.  The memorial is an Eagle Scout project by 15-year-old Joseph R. Ricketts.

A bronze American eagle will be atop the monument with three bronze placques.  Surrounding the monument is a five-sided walkway in the shape of a pentagon.

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!
