Pentagon Memorial hosting Concert honoring Veterans’ Day
LOWER CHICHESTER — Described by many in attendance as a wonderful afternoon, Sunday’s dedication of the new 9/11 memorial was both touching and reverent.
The centerpiece of the memorial, which sits in a place of prominence at the Rocco Gaspari Sr. Park on Hewes Avenue, is an 800-pound, 4-foot beam that was once part of the South Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City.

On September 11, 2011, students and faculty constructed a memorial on the school’s front lawn. In total, 2,977 American flags were arranged in the shape of 9 – 11, each flag representing a life that was lost in the attacks. In addition, the top portion of the 9 resembled a geometric pentagon, symbolizing the people that perished at the Pentagon.
Arlington County hosted the 10th Arlington Police, Fire and Sheriff 9/11 5K Sept. 10 in Crystal City. With 4,212 finishers the race went off with gusto at 6 p.m.
The race, according to the website, originated after Capt. Matt Smith and Detective Dan Borrelli returned from a New York run and decided that Arlington should host a race leading to the inception of the first 9/11 5K in Arlington County. All proceeds go to 9/11 related charities.

Kahleb Fallon's first memories aren't of his mother's bright red hair.
They're not of the big grin his mother wore every day or of her biting wit.
That's because Kahleb's mother -- 23-year-old Jamie Lynn Fallon -- was working in the Pentagon as a storekeeper third class on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. She was one of the 184 people who lost their lives after a hijacked Flight 77 crashed into the building.
Kahleb was 7 months old at the time.
