The Pentagon is the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense, located in Arlington County, Virginia. As a symbol of the U.S. military, "the Pentagon" is often used metonymically to refer to the Defense Department rather than the building itself.
During the White House Siege, Speaker of the House Allan Trumbull was and became Acting President as Benjamin Asher and Vice President Charlie Rodriguez were held captive. Soon after the White House was taken by K.U.F, Kang assassinated Prime Minister Lee Tae-Woo via a live feed from the P.E.O.C. bunker before demanding Army Chief of Staff Edward Clegg to stand his men down.
Later, Kang contacted the Pentagon again and ordered Trumbull and other officials to withdraw the Seventh Fleet from the Sea of Japan and all 28,500 troops from the Korean Demilitarized Zone to a North Korean invasion of South Korea. As the hours passed, the officials aided Mike in his sole fight against the K.U.F. to rescue President Asher and Connor and were alerted by NORAD of the entrance of the Cerberus codes.
After a botched operation to retake the White House, Kang assassinated Vice President Rodriguez in retaliation on the live feed and told that he now had an hour to fulfill Kang's demands and ordered a helicopter on the North Lawn once he did so.
Later, Trumbull and other officials received news that Cerberus was activated and were horrified when they realized that the terrorists were planning to detonate the entire nuclear arsenal in their silos, triggering a nationwide meltdown. across the U.S. However, Mike killed Kang and the remaining terrorists and Monroe gave Mike the shutdown code to deactivate Cerberus with only three seconds to spare. With the crisis ended and Asher saved, Trumbull most likely to redeploy the Seventh Fleet and troops again.
