Flight 93 Memorial is Barry-caded

2013_10 10 Flight 93 closed

The Flight 93 National Memorial is a 400-acre bowl-shaped area.

The land was acquired partly by

  • donations from land-owners,
  • purchases made with cash donations,
  • purchases made with profits made by the film United 93.

The monument itself was paid for with

  • private donations ($20 million),
  • money provided by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania ($18.5 million), and
  • money appropriated by Congress ($10 million).

The Flight 93 National Memorial Campaign was a partnership among:

  • the Families of Flight 93,
  • the Flight 93 Federal Advisory Commission,
  • the Flight 93 Memorial Task Force,
  • the National Park Service,
  • the National Park Foundation and
  • many representatives of
    • local,
    • state and
    • national organizations,
    • agencies and
    • interests, as well as
    • people from around the world.

The National Park Service, its volunteers, and its partners ordinarily work to honor the sacrifice of those on Flight 93.

  • Winter Hours: 9AM-5PM (effective October 13, 2010)
  • Summer Hours: 9AM-7PM (effective April 1, 2011)

President Stompy Foot ordered it closed.

The NPS still has staff there … to keep people OUT.

Senate Democrats continue to REFUSE to bring a House bill to the floor for a vote that would authorize funding for the National Park Service and get all our parks reopened.

  2. There is apparently no limit to the pettiness of this SCOAMF.

    • He reminds me more and more of Frank, the little man with the big puppet in The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis. One of my favorite bits is where he mumbles about how he once left the last 2 cent stamp for his wife to use and she never noticed his sacrifice.
