WASHINGTON â€” Families of those who died aboard United Airlines Flight 93 asked lawmakers and Obama administration officials on Wednesday to set aside federal money to complete a 9/11 memorial at the crash site in Pennsylvania.
The dedication of the first phase of the $62 million Flight 93 National Memorial was held in September. The memorial will honor the 40 passengers and crew members who died when the airliner crashed in a field near Shanksville on Sept. 11, 2001. Passengers fought terrorists for control of the hijacked plane that was targeting Washington, D.C.
