Pentagon Memorial volunteers

On the first anniversary of the Pentagon's 9-11 Memorial, families who lost loved ones in the attack are looking for a few good volunteers. Lisa Dolan, whose husband, Navy Captain Robert Dolan, was killed in the attack, is organizing an effort to train docents who would help memorial visitors to understand the human impact of the attack. She's hoping to get as many as 80-plus volunteers to help.
