The memorial includes a bench and reflecting pool for each person killed. The names on the benches are placed so that those of the plane passengers face the open sky and those who were inside the building are facing the Pentagon.

The program and other materials from the ceremony have been placed in the ACA display case and members are welcome to visit ACA headquarters to view them. Members visiting ACA can also watch the commemorative DVD given to attendees titled "A Nation Remembers: The Story of the Pentagon Memorial."
