A 9/11 Memorial was unveiled at the Ohio Air National Guard 180th Fighter Wing on Sunday in observance of Sept. 11.

At this time the memorial is only partially completed.

It will incorporate artifacts secured by the 180th Fighter Wing – a steel beam from the World Trade Center, limestone from the Pentagon and soil from the Pennsylvania field where Flight 93 went down. The memorial will include 2,977 glass pieces, honoring each individual who died in the attacks.

Toledo Regional Architects, Contractors & Engineers, with support from other Toledo community partners, are engineering and constructing the memorial which was envisioned by members of the 180th Fighter Wing.

There will be a public dedication ceremony when the memorial is completed. The memorial will be accessible and open to the public from that point forward.
