Excerpt: As Pentagon survivors prepare for an Oct. 11 memorial service to remember those killed by terrorists, burn scars still blemish the pale face of Spc. Michael Petrovich. His body has healed, though, and much of the emotional residue has faded enough that Petrovich now speaks openly of the chaotic seconds when hijackers rammed a passenger-filled jet through his Pentagon office Sept. 11.
