The National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial

Visit the memorial dedicated to the lives that were lost at the Pentagon during the attacks that occurred on September 11th, 2001. Julie Beckman and Keith Kaseman designed the memorial, and it was unveiled exactly seven years after the tragedy. The layout of the memorial is based on year of birth, arranged on an age line. The 184 victims of the attack are marked by “Memorial Units” with the victim’s age and location at the time of the attack. Groups can also see the Crape Myrtle trees that surround the memorial and the pools of water reflecting light in the evenings next to each unit.
