One hundred eighty four lives were lost in a single moment at the Pentagon – one hundred eighty four individuals forever linked through the horrific events that unfolded on September 11, 2001 .
They were men, women and children. They were mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, sisters and brothers, daughters and sons.
They came from all walks of life – administrative assistants, doctors, educators, flight crew members, military leaders, scientists, and students.
They came from towns and cities, large and small, across the United States and around the world.
The youngest was only three, the oldest 71. Despite the differences that distinguish them, these innocent individuals are united through the horrific events that unfolded on one of the darkest days in America's history.
On September 11th, 2008, a new memorial honoring victims of the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon was dedicated.
