WASHINGTON — The top US defense officials remembered victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the Pentagon, also honoring sacrifices the military has made in the war that followed that day's carnage.

"We honor them with our presence and certainly with this memorial," Adm. Mike Mullen said at a Pentagon ceremony for those who died in the building and on the plane that hit it.

"Mostly, we honor them with our lives, with what we have done from that day to this — the sacrifices we have borne, the laughter we have shared, the hope we have dared to let back into our hearts."

"Today we also reflect on what those attacks meant for an entire generation of young Americans who answered the call to serve," Defense Secretary Robert Gates said of the armed forces.
