One of my favorite memorials was the Pentagon Memorial.  Seeing all of those glowing benches really hit home and made me emotional.  The benches were in the shape of arrows, if the person passed away in the Pentagon the bench pointed towards the Pentagon, if they pointed away, they passed away on the plane.  This was the only memorial we managed to see at night (which was a disappointment to me), but we had so much to see in 9 short days.

  1. Oh my goodness…I had no idea this existed (I’ve never been to D.C.) but how fabulous! I can only imagine the emotion you felt. Thank you so much for sharing this.

  2. This is another one we didn’t have time for when we visited DC. Your photos and description make it very real to me though. Thanks for showing us.
