One flag was placed at the Memorial this morning.

This morning as the first rays of the sun hit Capitol Mall, people from agencies of Metro Fire, Sacramento Fire, Cosumnes Fire, West Sacramento Fire, Folsom Fire, Sacramento Airport Fire, Sacramento PD, Placer Sheriff, Sacramento Sheriff, and Elk Grove PD were constructing a Pentagon Memorial between 5th and 7th Streets, for the second time, to remember the 3,000 people who died from the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

The fence was touched up with paint.
Debris was wiped from the names.
Metro Fire Deputy Chief (Ret.) Geoff Miller placed a flag next to his friend’s name.
Setting up the memorial this morning was a trial run for the Run to Remember and Tribute in the Park happening Sept. 9. It  was later dismantled and will be re-constructed before the Run to Remember.

Metro Fire Deputy Chief (Ret.) Geoff Miller responded to the Pentagon on September 12, 2001. He lost a close friend, FDNY Chief Downey,  who died in the Towers.
He placed a flag next to his friend’s name this morning.

Last year’s run and memorial attracted 4,000 people.
