Two beams from the World Trade Center's north tower will soon be part of a 9/11 memorial at Dover Air Force Base.

Officials broke ground Thursday for the memorial at the Air Mobility Command Museum. The steel beams will form a V-shape pointed toward New York City on a compass base that will also point toward crash sites at the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa. A stone from Shanksville will be incorporated into the memorial.

Col. Rick Moore, commander of the 436th Airlift Wing, says 49 other states have memorials incorporating steel from the trade center towers and Delaware will become the 50th after the dedication next month.

Eagle Firefighters Association President Aaron Weisenberger says the project will cost $35,000 and more than $22,000 has been raised.
