Pentagon Observance (short), one year later.
This photo was taken at the Memorial Ceremony conducted at the Pentagon on September 11, 2002. There were about 8,000 people assembled on huge temporary bleachers. Speakers included the President of the United States (George Busch), and most members of Congress were present, as well as many high ranking military officers. Security for this event was extremely extensive, including humvees outfitted with M-60 machine guns manned by members of the Armed Forces. There were also humvees surrounding the area armed with anti-aircraft missles. Counter sniper teams surrounded the entire complex of the Pentagon on many buildings nearby. 10 inches tall by 29.5 inches long FF_GRZ_008.
