September 11 Memorial at Arlington Cemetery

An honor guard stands beside the casket containing the cremated remains
of unidentified victims from the attack on the Pentagon during a group funeral
at the Arlington National Cemetery September 12, 2002.

184 people perished in the attacks at the Pentagon
64 are buried in Section 64 at Arlington - an area that looks at the Pentagon
A group burial of the unidetified remains took place
on September 12, 2002 in the same location
The marker for the remains is a five sided marker with each name

I have visited this section of Arlington. The Memorial is a gathering place for mementos, pictures, letters, painted rocks. It is a very powerful place.
