I went to this Memorial on an annual Rolling Thunder event. It is a place to remember those that lost their lives to people that despise freedom. It is a permanent outdoor memorial to the 184 men and women who lost their lives as victims of the attack, killed both in the building and on American Airlines Flight 77 in the September 11, 2001 attacks. I'm including a quote, "The wound to this building will not be forgotten, but it will be repaired. Brick by brick, we will quickly rebuild the Pentagon." As such, we as Americans hope to rebuild our true sense of freedom to defeat the enemies of freedom. It has only been 67 years since the end of another threat to freedom that confronted us. We with our allies with tremendous loss of lives to defeat this evil are confronted again with a threat to destroy freedom. Let this memorial be a place to remind the citizens of America we have something that many other countries don't have and don't want. It is a truly moving place to visit and would highly recommend it.

If you happen to be in the area, nice to see. Very quiet and serene. Nice little benches and water feature.

As one walks through they start with the youngest killed to the oldest. and they face the direction if they were coming in on the plane or was in the Pentagon. What a sad day this was.

...I went to remember one of my buddies. Sobering...well done and the design is very fitting. Thinking back on that day, this is an honorable memorial. Weekends are better to view; otherwise, parking is troublesome.

Perfect type of memorial, and very unique. And, fittingly, it is in front of the side of the Pentagon that was damaged in the attack. You could see where the new limestone concrete was placed to repair the bldg. The retired pentagon employee who was volunteering there was very nice and helpful. The only part i didn't like was that it's out in the open with no shade; and I was there on a very hot and humid day. It will be alot nicer when those trees grow and provide shade on the property.
