    The memorial was designed in the shape of the Pentagon, with remnants of the World Trade Center and a plaque remembering the victims of Flight 93.

    The Daily Times says the ceremony was led by Fire Company President John Morris, whose bother, Seth, died in the attack. A flag was presented to him by Ramberger that flew over the U.S. Capitol and was contributed by U.S. Rep. Joe Pitts, R-16th of East Marlborough.
