LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Sunday marks 15 years since the terror attacks of 9/11.

On Sunday, a 9/11 memorial will be dedicated in Hardin County.

For the past five years, the Kentucky September 11 Memorial Committee has been working on the memorial. It's funded by local companies and Kentuckians.

The memorial includes a cross-shaped beam that was once part of the World Trade Center. It also includes portions of charred walls that were part of the Pentagon.

Coordinators say it helps bring the tragedy to life and honor the lives that were lost.

The memorial dedication is scheduled for 2 p.m. at the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery in Hardin County.
