At the Pentagon, millions of dollars of concrete and steel now stand where American Airlines Flight 77 left a gaping hole a year ago today.
The re- construction is way ahead of schedule, allowing 46- hundred displaced workers to return.
Later today, President Bush will speak to them and to thousands of others affected by the Pentagon attack, which killed 189 people.
But the centerpiece of the Pentagon ceremony will be a moment of silence, at the exact minute the plane hit.
