 Construction to Start on Pentagon Memorial Site

6/9/2006 6:08:00 PM - News

By Sgt. Sara Wood, USA
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, June 9, 2006 As another sign of progress toward establishing a lasting tribute to the 184 people killed at the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, the start of on-site construction for the Pentagon Memorial will be marked with a June 15 ceremony here.

This design photo shows how the Pentagon Memorial will be built on a two-acre site at the Pentagon, just outside the spot where terrorists crashed the hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 into the building. The design includes 184 illuminated benches representing each of the victims killed, with lighted reflecting pools beneath each bench. Photo courtesy of Kaseman Beckman Amsterdam Studio "I knew going into this that this would be more of a marathon rather than a sprint," said Jim Laychak, president of the Pentagon Memorial Fund. "The fact that we're here, at the groundbreaking, two and a half years from when we'll dedicate the memorial, shows that we're making progress and shows that this is real and this is going to happen."   more>>

 Airstrike kills terror leader al-Zarqawi in Iraq

6/8/2006 7:43:00 AM - News

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the coalition's most wanted man in Iraq, was killed in an airstrike near Baquba, jubilant U.S. and Iraqi authorities announced Thursday.  Iraqi soldiers dance with a woman Thursday in Baghdad after hearing that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is dead.

"At 6:15 Baghdad time, Special Operations forces, acting on tips and intelligence from Iraqis, confirmed Zarqawi's location and delivered justice to the most wanted terrorist in Iraq," said President Bush during a White House statement.   

Bush said al-Zarqawi's death gives Iraq a chance to "turn the tide" in the fight against the nation's insurgency.  more>>
