Not there anymore as of 11/13/15.[Reid, 11/21/2015]
The memorial was moved to the front lawn of the town Fire Department in Sep. 2015.
The memorial as of 9/11/15 was moved to Salem Fire Station number 1 in downtown Salem, Va. Seems like a more fitting spot, and is now easier to get to and view.[B., 09/24/2015]
