Pentagon Memorial Dedication







I am very excited. Today I received tickets to the invitation only dedication of the Pentagon Memorial. This means a great deal to me as it was the attacks on our country that day which lead me to begin exploring going back into the military on active duty as a chaplain. I see the Pentagon every day from where I work here at Arlington. Planes constantly overfly the cemetery on the way to Reagan International Airport. Not a day goes by at Arlington that I don't recall the attack on our nation that took place here.

On September 11th, great sorrow came to our country.
And from that sorrow has come great resolve.
Today, we are a nation awakened to the evil of terrorism, and determined to destroy it.
That work began
the moment we were attacked;
and it will continue until justice is delivered.


-- President George Bush Oct 11, 2001 speech at the Pentagon
