Pentagon 911 Memorial
Washington, DC

The Pentagon 911 Memorial was completed in 2008 and honors the 184 people killed in the building and on American Airlines Flight 77.  Each of the 184 benches are engraved with the name of a victim and has a small illuminated reflecting pool below.

The benches face in two directions 59 of the benches, passengers, face one direction and the additional 125 face the other.  When you read the name engraved on the bench if you back is to the Pentagon it is a passenger.  If you are facing the Pentagon and reading the name that person was in the Pentagon.

You may find a plaque in the pool below a bench and that is to denote that the bench is that of a family member that perished also.  You’ll find that there is staff on site to give assistance.  However, there is a cell phone guided tour that you can listen too at 202-741-1004.

The Pentagon 911 Memorial is located just outside the Pentagon next to the Pentagon south parking lot.  But don’t expect to park right next to the memorial unless you have handicapped privileges you can stop and drop off but no regular parking right next to the memorial.  Check the websites for parking locations.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
