Representatives of government, industry and victims' families took a step recently toward building a memorial to the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the Pentagon.

The Pentagon Memorial Fund launched its $30 million fund-raising effort at a ceremony last month that included an initial, $1 million donation from Anheuser-Busch Cos.

Speakers at the ceremony included, from left, Rep. Tom Davis (R.-Va.), Michael Roche of Anheuser-Busch, and James Laychak, president of the Pentagon Memorial Fund.

Information on the Pentagon Memorial Fund and plans for the memorial can be found at www.pentagonmemorial.net.
