9-11 memorial fountain Prince William County

Prince William County's 9-11 memorial features a pentagon-shaped fountain with two streams of water, symbolic of the World Trade Center towers that were lost in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Prince William County officials released a short video Friday to remember the 22 residents who lost their lives in the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the Pentagon, which occurred 19 years ago today.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic prevented county officials from holding their annual Sept. 11 remembrance ceremony this year.

The video, titled "Never Forget," features Board of Supervisors Chair Ann Wheeler, who explains the county's 9-11 memorial, which was constructed at government complex in the years since the attacks. 

The names of the 22 Prince William County residents who died at the Pentagon are typically read during the annual ceremony.

  • Sergeant First Class John J. Chada, U.S. Army, Retired
