National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial

National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial The Pentagon Memorial park consists of 184 memorial units, each of which are dedicated to an individual victim of the September 11th attacks, by its unique placement within the collective field.
(145)

On September 11, 2001, terrorists crashed Flight 77 into the Pentagon, killing the 59 passengers on board the aircraft and 125 military and civilian personnel who were working inside the Pentagon. Shortly after the attack, the United States Congress authorized the Secretary of Defense to create a permanent memorial on the grounds of the Pentagon.

Mission: "The memorial should instill the ideas that patriotism is a moral duty, that freedom comes at a price, and that the victims of this attack have paid the ultimate price...We challenge you to create a memorial that translates this terrible tragedy into a place of solace, peace, and healing." - Family Statement The Pentagon Memorial Family Steering Committee

The FDNY Trident Ride firefighters laid a wreath at the Pentagon Memorial today after stopping in DC along their 18-day cycling route from NYC to The National Navy UDT SEAL Museum in Florida to escort a 14-foot piece of steel from the World Trade Center.

Thank you all for your efforts and for taking the time to remember and honor the 184 lives lost at the Pentagon on 9/11.

We wish you safe travels to Florida!

Receiving a medal after crossing the finish line of a race (or a finisher coin, like at the Army Ten Miler) is a reminder and mark of many hard miles run for each participant. Someone left their coin on Major Milam's memorial unit this past Sunday after the race. It was a very touching sight to see.

Thank you to all those who ran to remember.

10/22/2013

The Army Ten Miler had thousands of runners passing by the Pentagon Memorial post-race. Thank you to all who visited - we hope you had a great race! It was certainly a beautiful day for a run.

Comments

On 9/11/2001 the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia committed an act of war against the United States. Rather than respond as we did following a less ambitious decapitation strike at Pearl Harbor, our leaders and the media have actually conspired with the Kingdom to whitewash their responsibility for 9/11. Whether they are traitors or useful idiots is for the people and history to judge. Saudi Arabia is the primary financier of the effort to subvert the nation through their Islamist ideology. It is estimated that at least 80% of US mosques were established with and still receiver significant funding from Saudi agents. Saudi Arabia is also conducting psychological operations through schools ranging from middle school to prestigious universities which demonize western democracies, blaming them for the ills of the Islamic world and advancing Islamic arguments and rituals. Saudi Arabia has hired armies of attorneys and lobbyists that shamefully fight the legitimate claims of the 9/11 families. They have dragged us into a genocidal war in Yemen and are attempting to spark one with Iran. They are also arming to the teeth and even getting nuclear technological assistance that could potentially result in the development of a nuclear weapon in the hands of a nation that committed 9/11. We must stop them.
Please hang a red bandana at the memorial and take a photo! We Will Never Forget!
I'd like to share a song and video that I made about 9/11. Sincerely Joseph Dauria
Please.....Can someone put one or more red bandanas at the Pentagon Memorial to honor the people who were lost. Red Bandana Day is 9-11 and we hang red bandanas in honor to all lost in D.C., NY and Pennsylvania. Please join our group on Facebook RED BANDANA DAY!
I was one mouse-click away from taking Flight 77 on that day. Instead I chose to fly to LA through Dallas, where I was grounded for 3 days, as all flights were cancelled. I will always keep everyone who died on 9/11 in my thoughts and my prayers.
