The View: Although the 9/11 Memorial & Museum is temporarily closed, we commemorate this Memorial Day by placing a tribute at the Survivor Tree on the 9/11 Memorial to honor the brave men and women of the armed forces who gave their life in service of our country. Take a moment this Memorial Day to remember the sacrifices of our fallen heroes.
