Pentagon Stone Completes Federal Way 9/11 Memorial

FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (AP) — South King County Fire and Rescue says its 9-11 memorial in Federal Way will be one of the few that contains artifacts from all three locations of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Alaska Air Cargo is delivering a 150-pound piece of limestone Monday that was part of the Pentagon that was hit. The department planned a ceremonial unveiling at the Sea-Tac Airport.

The memorial also includes a 10-foot steel beam from the wreckage of the World Trade Center in New York and a rock from the airplane crash site in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
