A New York City foundation is donating a U.S. flag recovered from ground zero to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.
The group's spokesman David Vermillion says the tattered, 20-foot-by-30-foot flag will first embark on a national tour. People from different areas of the country will help restore it to its original 13-stripe format, using pieces from retired flags.
