Sept 11-Victim Fund

In this Sept. 11, 2001 file photo, smoke rises from the burning twin towers of the World Trade Center after hijacked planes crashed into the towers, in New York City. 

Twenty years ago this Sept. 11, terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and into a field in Pennsylvania after passengers and crew fought back. Burke County native Eric Cranford was killed when the plane struck the Pentagon.

The brazen, three-pronged assault left nearly 3,000 dead and the nation in turmoil.
