The City of Green Bay, Wisconsin plans to demolish and rebuild their September 11th memorial near the Neville Public Museum.

The memorial is cracking and fading because the marble used cannot hold up to outdoor conditions. The memorial also contains errors — claiming that American Flight 175 and United Flight 77 were hijacked on September 11, 2001, when the actual flight numbers were United Flight 175 and American Flight 77, reports Cearron Bagenda for WBAY Channel 2.
