Inventioneers Visit Pentagon

While we were in DC in January, we took a tour of the Pentagon. There were lots of interesting displays but not much time to take it all in. There was a hushed, respectful memorial room where Flight 77 crashed, honoring those who died. There was a journal where we left a message of sadness and respect. Outside, there was a memorial garden but with freezing temperatures and bitter winds, we didn't go out to see it.

No photos were allowed of the building (the one here is a stock photo) or along the tour route. Our knowledgeable guide gave us the entire tour walking backwards - a feat he accomplished easily and a technique we soon got used to. We were able to take photos only at the official press area.
