TRIANGLE, Va. (AP) - A steel I-beam from the World Trade Center is part of a new Sept. 11 exhibit at the National Museum of the Marine Corps.
The exhibit also includes a piece of stone recovered from the Pentagon after it was hit by a plane on Sept. 11, 2001.
The Free Lance-Star ( http://bit.ly/mWw6zD) reports that a dedication ceremony for the I-beam was held Wednesday.
Museum officials encourage visitors to touch the artifact. Director Lin Ezell said it's "a part of the country's very soul."
