Panetta to participate in 9/11 events in Pennsylvania and at Pentagon

WASHINGTON – Defense Secretary Leon Panetta will travel to Pennsylvania on Monday to commemorate victims of the 9/11 attacks who died when terrorists crashed their plane into a field near Shanksville.

The day after touring the Flight 93 National Memorial, Panetta will participate in two 9/11 events scheduled at the Pentagon: a morning observance to be held at the Pentagon Memorial, and one for all servicemembers and civilian Pentagon employees in the Pentagon courtyard in the afternoon, Pentagon officials said.
