“Heroes Forever” narrates Flight 93 memorial.

The 40 passengers and crew of United Flight 93 were honored Monday on the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks as heroes in the battle against terrorism, credited with saving countless lives on the ground by forcing the plane to crash in an empty field.

"One moment ordinary citizens and the next, heroes forever," Gen. Tommy Franks told the crowd, which included nearly 300 family members and hundreds of others. "We mourn their loss, to be sure, but we also celebrate their victory here in the first battle on terrorism."
