A Nation Remembers: The Story of the Pentagon Memorial tells the powerful story of America s first National 9/11 Memorial and the families behind its development. The program spotlights the Pentagon Memorial, in all stages of construction through completion, as a backdrop for telling the stories of the men and women who gave their lives, and the families who lost so much.

The Pentagon Memorial serves as both a reminder and a place of healing for the nation and for those whose lives were reshaped by the events of September 11, 2001.

As such, it is an issue of national importance that as many Americans as possible are able to join in the remembrance and tribute this Memorial offers, but the fact remains that most will never have the opportunity to see these grounds first hand. It is, therefore, an altogether fitting extension of the Memorial to take a piece of that sacred ground directly into the homes of millions of Americans through the powerful media of television and Home DVD.

The Pentagon Memorial Documentary Special does just that. This one-hour television special and extended Home DVD, hosted by actor Gary Sinise, was shot entirely in beautiful High Definition, and features an original score by Emmy Award winning composer David Barrett.

The film includes original interviews with President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Richard Myers, Senator Joe Lieberman, and a host of other governmental and Defense Department leaders. Central to the film are original interviews with a host of surviving family members who lost loved ones at the Pentagon on 9/11, all interwoven with a stirring narrative designed to tell the highly personal stories of those who sacrificed while offering viewers the broader context in terms of great themes from the American story. The film serves as both a lasting tribute and a means of preserving history for generations to come.

As part of the Official Dedication Ceremonies for the Memorial on September 11, 2008, 20,000 copies of A Nation Remembers were distributed to the invited guests and dignitaries. The program is currently airing across the country on broadcast affiliates. (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX)
