On September 11, 2001 the ground of a remote field in western Pennsylvania was broken by the crash of United Flight 93 and the loss of the forty passengers and crewmembers on board. Eight years later, ground was broken again on November 7, 2009 as construction of a new national memorial begins at this sacred ground. National leaders, family members, local residents and volunteers, and capital campaign supporters were among those who gathered in Shankvsville, Pennsylvania to mark this special occasion and look forward to dedication of the memorial in 2011 during the tenth annual observance of 9/11.

This groundbreaking ceremony at the crash site marked the beginning of the construction process, as the campaign to support the memorial continues. Make a contribution to the Flight 93 Campaign today and help build one of America’s newest national parks.
