FDNY honored with Pentagon stone in Fort Hamilton

A piece of stone recovered from rubble at the Pentagon following the Sept. 11 attacks has found a new home.

The commanding general from the Joint Force Headquarters National Capital Region presented the FDNY with the 800-pound stone at Fort Hamilton today. The ceremony and gift recognize the actions of firefighters who responded in the rescue and recovery efforts following the attacks.

The stone was recovered from the west side of the Pentagon, which was struck by Flight 77 on Sept. 11. It was initially 19-feet long and weighed 2,400 pounds, but was later cut into three pieces.

Officials say the stone will be installed at the Fire Department Academy on Randall's Island.
