A firetruck damaged in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the Pentagon will arrive at the General George Patton Museum and Center of Leadership in Fort Knox on Tuesday, September 10, 2013.
The damaged rig, known as Foam 161, will be driven with police escort from Fort Knox to Elizabethtown and back on September 10 from approximately 2:00pm to 4:00pm. The public is encouraged to line U.S. Highway 31W to pay their respects. When the truck arrives at the Patton Museum, the three firefighters — Alan Wallace, Dennis Young and Mark Skipper — assigned to Foam 161 on 9/11 will be there to meet it and will join in a ceremony.
The public, especially local schoolchildren, are invited to greet them.
Foam 161 was assigned to the Pentagon heliport on September 11, 2001, and was damaged when American Flight 77 crashed into the E ring of the building.
Foam 161 will then be on permanent display at the Patton Museum as part of a new exhibit currently under construction.
