FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (AP) — A 150-pound piece of limestone that was part of the Pentagon hit in the September 11 terrorist attack arrived at Sea-Tac Airport Monday and was received in a ceremony by firefighters from South King Fire and Rescue.

The memorial also includes a 10-foot steel beam from the wreckage of the World Trade Center in New York and a rock from the airplane crash site in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.The Federal Way memorial is expected to be dedicated this September 11.
