This piece of flag was tucked into a steel beam from the World Trade Center dedicated July 4, 2003. Presented by The Fire Family Transport Foundation of the NYC Fire Department for the 343 firefighters who fought a battle in NYC on September 11, 2001. To the Marines who honored them on the battlefields of Iraq in the spring of 2003. Gone but not forgotten. Semper Fidelis
