Obama signs legislation for Sept. 11 medal to be displayed in Pa., where Flight 93 crashed
By The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH (AP) ' President Barack Obama has signed a bill that honors victims of the Sept. 11 attacks with congressional medals.

Obama signed the Fallen Heroes of 9/11 Act on Friday. The congressional gold medals will be given to the Flight 93 National Memorial in Pennsylvania, the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York and the Pentagon Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The Pennsylvania memorial honors the victims of United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in Shanksville, a rural area southeast of Pittsburgh. A spokesman for the Families of Flight 93 says the medal is a wonderful holiday present for people who lost loved ones on Sept. 11, 2001.
