Play associated audio

The military is presenting a piece of stone from the damaged west facade of the Pentagon to the FBI's Washington field office during a ceremony to thank officials for their rescue and recovery efforts on 9/11.

The 800-pound piece of limestone comes from a larger stone which was taken from the Pentagon as part of the recovery efforts in 2001. That larger stone was cut into three pieces; one of the pieces has already been presented to the Arlington County Fire Department.

The other will be given to the New York City Fire Department next month.
