Chunk of the Pentagon.

Rubble from 9-11

The memorial was created as a Boy Scouts of America Eagle Scout project. Well-maintained. Lists the names of the victims at the Pentagon, and the victims on Flight 77 that crashed into the Pentagon.

Bonus -- tank right next to the memorial.

Rubble from 9-11

This monument to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the Pentagon was built by a 15-year-old Boy Scout. He went to the Pentagon and returned with an actual piece of limestone rubble, which was then mounted on a pedestal. The sidewalk surrounding the monument is in the shape of a pentagon.
