Fort Bragg's September 11 Monument

Do you know the story behind the monument at the Main Post flagpole?

On the Main Post Parade Field at Fort Bragg, a monument tucked away in a tranquil setting proudly stands to commemorate those soldiers killed in the 9/11 attacks and the sacrifice of over 5,500 service members who have died while fighting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The stone came from Curahee Mountain in Georgia, the site of Camp Toccoa, a World War II-era paratrooper training ground. The fire bowl is cast from steel salvaged from the wreckage of the World Trade Center after the terrorist attacks on the buildings on Sept. 11, 2001.

The $140,000 project was taken on by Lt. Gen. Frank G. Helmick, commanding general of Fort Bragg and the XVIII Airborne Corps, along with other Army and civilian leaders. The monument was dedicated in 2010.
