This five-sided (pentagon) granite marker is placed in Section 64 over the group burial site for those who were killed in the terrorist attack on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 when Flight 77 was crashed into the building. On the marker are inscribed the names of the 184 individuals both in the Pentagon and on the flight who died that day. These fallen heroes were buried as a group following a ceremony in the Memorial Amphitheater in September 2002. Nearby are also individual headstones. Five families did not receive any remains of their loved ones but are part of the group burial marker.
