More than 180 people lost their lives in the Pentagon attack. One of them was James Debeuneure, a fifth-grade teacher traveling with three students on Flight 77. His daughter, Jalin, remembers the last moments she shared with her father. "That morning was pretty special," she says. "Normally, I don't get out of my bed and physically give him a hug and send him off to wherever he's going, but, for some reason, I got out of my bed and gave him a hug. We both said 'I love you'...and that's the last time that I spoke to him."

Donn Marshall's wife, Shelley, was sitting at her desk when the plane hit. "Things happened here that nobody knows about," he says. "At one point, there was a big gash in the wall where the plane went in and the firefighters were going in and out...I kept waiting for a chance to get in there."

Abe Scott still finds it hard to look at the building where his wife, Janice, once worked. "She is here with me," he says. "This is the place where she worked. This is the place where she was murdered, and this is the place where I'm going to remember her, as she was, when she was alive."
