Booz Allen Hamilton, a leader of management and technology consulting services to the U.S. government, will sponsor the presentation, “September 11: Remembrance and Reflection” at the National Museum of American History. The exhibition marks the ten year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks and can be viewed at the museum Sept. 3-11.
The exhibit will comprise over 50 artifacts pulled from all three sites of the attacks. The display includes airplane fragments, a door from a crushed FDNY fire truck, objects from recovered offices in the Pentagon and other things found that day. These items will be put on tables for display instead of behind glass to make the presentation more realistic and intimate.
“Ten years later, our nation will pause to remember the incredible losses of September 11, which included the loss of three Booz Allen employees who were working at the Pentagon,” said Senior Vice President Christopher Kelly, who oversees the firm’s homeland security business. “As we reflect, this display of objects will help remind us how Americans came together to support one another after the attacks.”
Booz Allen sponsored other museum programs in the past such as the Norman Rockwell exhibit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Gallery of Art’s Edward Hopper exhibit. Objects from “Remembrance and Reflection” will be preserved at the museum.
