Public’s help sought in funding 9/11 memorial in Kentucky

Somerset-Pulaski County Special Response Team received a 3,000-pound piece of World Trade Center steel years ago and displayed it. Their headquarters burned down in April 2021 and now they are rebuilding a home for the steel that will include a granite model of the Twin Towers, sod from the Flight 93 crash site, and Pentagon-shaped portions, reports Christopher Harris of the Commonwealth Journal.

The agency needs help meeting the costs of the new memorial, which will not use any insurance proceeds from the fire. They’d like to have the memorial complete in time for the 22nd anniversary of the attacks next year.
