Steel From Twin Towers Makes Western Md. Memorial

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A piece of the World Trade Center is becoming the centerpiece of a Sept. 11 memorial in Hagerstown.

City and Washington County officials plan a dedication ceremony Tuesday evening at City Park.

A local committee acquired the 727-pound piece of steel in May.

The event includes a procession of more than 40 emergency vehicles and a wreath-laying ceremony. A tree will be planted in honor of Marine Lance Cpl. Maung Htiak, a Washington County resident who was killed in January while serving in Afghanistan.

    The 727-pound piece of steel will be proudly displayed in “Virtually Untouched” condidtion; having only the following items performed on it:

    1.) Mechanically Sandblasted – (Necessary to remove adhesive residue where explosives were attached prior to 9/11)

    2.) Chemically Dipped – (Necessary to remove traces of Thermite compounds)

    3.) Acid Washed – (Necessary to remove Bush’s fingerprints)

    4.) Dabbed with Crude Oil – (Necessary to implicate the Middle East in the attack)

    Every possible effort has been made to preserve the steel in its original condition.
