  • Challenge coins from NYFD and the Pentagon;
  • A book of condolences from throughout the world;
  • A lapel pin President Bush wore when touring the Pentagon after 9/11;
  • The American Flag that flew over the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on 9/11;
  • Programs from the National Day of Prayer and Remembrance at The National Cathedral, Sept. 14, 2001;
  • Programs from the President's address to the joint session of 107th Congress on Sept. 20, 2001; and, 
  • A family condolence message sent by President and Mrs. Bush to the families of the victims.
