  • Remembering 9/11 one stitch at a time

    The 9/11 International Memorial Flag, a handmade flag honoring the victims and families of 9/11 and those fighting the Global War on Terrorism, is now on temporary display at the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center. It consists of nearly 3,000 small American flags sewn together to represent the victims of the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Flight 93. It also features national flags representing the countries the victims came from, as well as flags representing first responder organizations involved in the rescue and recovery efforts. It was created by “United We Stand, United We Sew” a group of volunteers from Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The flag measures 22 feet by 32 feet and took five months to complete. It was unveiled in 2002 and has since traveled across the country to be displayed. Thomas McBrien, the flag's curator, delivered it to the museum Monday afternoon.
