Town dedicating 9/11 memorial containing steel from towers
SALEM, N.H. (AP) — The town of Salem, New Hampshire, is dedicating a 9/11 memorial that has a piece of steel from the World Trade Center.
The Eagle Tribune reports the memorial was planned by the Salem Won’t Forget Committee. It was being dedicated Wednesday, 18 years after al-Qaida hijackers commandeered four U.S. commercial airlines.
The memorial features replicas of the World Trade Center towers that fell that day and the Pentagon, another site of attack. It also contains the word “remember” and the words of passengers on Flight 93 who fought the hijackers before their plane crashed into a field in Pennsylvania.
