Chelmsford honors 9/11 victims, receives Trade Center beam

Chelmsford, Massachusetts received one of the last remaining pieces of steel from the World Trade Center and plan to build a memorial featuring it, wrote Kathy McCabe in the Boston Globe on March 30, 2016

Nancy Bernard, widow of Chelmsford 9/11 victim David Bernard, watched the steel’s arrival.

Two members of the Chelmsford community were killed in the terrorist attack — Bernard, 57, who was walking to a downtown meeting when he was hit with falling debris from the World Trade Center, and Andrew Curry Green, 34, a passenger aboard American Airlines flight 11 the plane that terrorist hijackers flew into 1 World Trade Center.

“I think it will be good, to have it here, to remember,” said Nancy Bernard.
