The 9/11 MEMORIAL
The 9/11 Memorial was our first stop. It's an understated Memorial to the lives lost that day. Laid out by the age of victims, the benches point towards or away from the Pentagon to indicate whether they were in the building or the plane.
From the 9/11, we worked our way over to the Iwo Jima Memorial where the veterans posed for pictures. There is construction on the steps on both the East and West sides of the Monument so watch your veterans and warn them.
The Air Force Memorial has become a favorite spot for Honor Flights to take a break, have lunch and gather thoughts as they proceed through the day.
