CRAZY HORSE MEMORIAL, S.D. (AP) - A steel fragment from the destroyed World Trade Center in New York City is part of a new monument at the Crazy Horse Memorial in South Dakota dedicated to the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
About 100 people attended a ceremony Tuesday on the 11th anniversary of the attacks to dedicate the monument that also includes two stone pillars.
Speakers included Larry Connors, a retired New York Fire Department battalion commander who responded to attack on the World Trade Center. Also speaking was Corky Soderstrom, a retired Hastings on Hudson policeman who responded to the attack.
The memorial also honors the efforts of emergency responders after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and United Airlines Flight 93.
