Steel From World Trade Center Memorialized in South Windsor

A chunk of World Trade Center steel that endured the attacks of Sept. 11 will be enshrined in South Windsor.

The steel, retrieved today from the hangar at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, will become part of the South Windsor Fire Department Memorial, according to the fire department.

It's part of an Eagle Scout project by Boy Scout Eric Hofmann, which aims to raise money to enhance the South Windsor memorial.

The addition was brought back to Connecticut with help from the South Windsor police and fire departments.

"Outstanding job by all involved," the fire department wrote on Facebook Wednesday. "God Bless the 343 FDNY, NYPD, Port Authority PD and the thousands that were murdered on 9-11."
