Armed Forces Museum to mark 9/11 with exhibit

CAMP SHELBY, MS (WDAM) - The Mississippi Armed Forces Museum at Camp Shelby will mark the upcoming 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks by honoring two Mississippians who were killed in those attacks.

A photographic exhibit in memory of James "Joe" Ferguson and Army Lt. Colonel Jerry Dickerson will be on display in the museum lobby throughout the month of September.

Ferguson was aboard American Airlines Flight-77, which crashed into the Pentagon. Dickerson was at the Pentagon working when the plane hit.

Both were from Durant.

The museum will also be open on September 11th.

"We'll mark the day, shortly after the 9 o'clock hour when the first attacks occurred, and let people remember on that day," said Chad Daniels, museum director. "It's a day we're normally closed, but we are open on all patriotic holidays, so we will be open on September 11th, which is a Sunday," Daniels said. 

He and staff members are also preparing for the museum's 10th anniversary celebration on October 15th.
