The whole world wept tears of pride as these men and women unfurled the Stars and Stripes from atop the Pentagon's roof, an image that will be engraved into American memory from this time forward. To each of you, for your courage and professionalism--and for helping to turn Arlington's darkest moment into its finest--we thank you.

​A Service of Remembrance was held at the Pentagon site. The large American flag that was draped over the top of the building on September 12 was lowered after 29 days and folded with full military honors.
