DALLAS (KTVT/CNN) - They were found among the ashes of the 9/11 terror attacks. And now a set of American Airlines flight attendant wings and pin have a permanent home in the company's museum.
More than a dozen people gathered to see the relics during a special ceremony at the CR Smith Museum on Thursday.
The wings and pin may have never returned had it not been for Joan Cote, director of the USO in Delaware.
She discovered them nearly two years ago among some unclaimed items from the Pentagon crash and arranged for their return.
"I could feel the crew members, they were there," Cote said. "I happen to be Catholic. It was profound for me, and I was telling them, I hear you, and I'm bringing you home to your family."
Because it's unclear just who owned the wings and pin, the airline dedicated them in memory of all who died when Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon.
