Defense Secretary Tours Flight 93 Memorial Today
As the eleventh anniversary of the September 11th attacks approaches, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta will privately tour the Flight 93 National Memorial today. The memorial consists of an open field with a single sandstone boulder that marks the exact spot where Flight 93 made impact in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
A wall is filled with the names of the passengers and crew members who stopped the terrorists from reaching their target. Vice-President Joe Biden is scheduled to speak at the memorial on Tuesday.
