MARVIN R. WOODS, 57, of Great Mills, Md., worked for 18 years as a civilian communications manager for the Navy and had been assigned to the Pentagon since the mid-1990s. Woods' office was located where the plane crashed into the building on Sept. 11. Woods spent 22 years on active duty and retired from the Navy in December 1984 as chief radioman, said his wife, Betty Woods. "He loved his country," she said. "He would not want to give in to this terrorism. He would want the U.S. to stand together, to stand firm."
