“Weapon's Platoon: A Marine's Life in Afghanistan”

“9/11 - We Remember”
The National Museum of the Marine Corps commemorates the anniversary of 9/11 with the temporary exhibit "9/11 - We Remember," which features an I-beam from the World Trade Center and a Pentagon building fragment as well as inspiring stories of extraordinary efforts that have been taken to keep America safe since that fateful day.

The exhibit invites visitors to share their memories of the day that ushered in a "new reality" for all Americans while also paying tribute to a generation that has borne the burden of our security during a decade of war.

The exhibit also pays tribute to the resilience of the American people and the stubborn defiance of the Corps and its Marines. Visitors will see that defiance in the display of a Marine Corps flag found standing upright near a sheered edge of the Pentagon, maintaining a silent vigil over the rubble of the damaged building. The flag, like the Marines it represents and the Nation they serve, never faltered under the terrorist attack.
On display until Spring of 2014
