Peterson Air Force Base Honors Victims of 9-11

A long time 4Clicks’ client, JBI Construction, was asked to build a 9-11 Memorial for the Peterson Air Force Base, as part of a joint venture partnership with SB Construction.

On April 30, 2010 a piece of damaged steel was delivered to the JBI Construction warehouse, a floor beam from the World Trade Center.

Designed and managed by the 21st Civil Engineering Squadron via a SABER contract, construction was a collaborative effort fortified with a spirit of dedication and remembrance.

The memorial dedication ceremony was May 18, 2010. The plaque reads:

β€œIn Remembrance of the nearly 3,000 innocent lives lost at the hands of terrorists on September 11,2001.

This steel beam – recovered from the remnants of the World Trade Center – is pointing towards New York, and pays respect to the lives lost there.

The Pentagon-shaped planter honors our fallen comrades and friends at the Pentagon. The Pennsylvania soil in the planter pays tribute to the brave passengers of Flight 93.

From the ashes of the terrorists attack on September 11 arose U.S. Northern Command, a combatant command ready to defend the homeland and support civil authorities.

This memorial is for all to know that U.S. Northern Command stands ready to defend liberty.

Let us never forget.”
