World Trade Center Dedication

AIR DATE: March 1, 2010

Many, many Americans have a 9/11 story. New York firefighter Lee Ielpi lost his son, also a firefighter, when the south tower of the World Trade Center collapsed.

He was in the Pentagon when it was attacked on 9/11.

Now people in Las Vegas will be able to touch a piece of the WTC. Literally. On Saturday February 27, the Atomic Testing Museum is adding two artifacts from the World Trade Center to its permanent collection.

What's your 9/11 story? Share it below.
