The walkway eventually widens in from of a ceremonial gate, shown in bronze, and the wall of names, comprised of 40 panels of 3 inch thick slabs of polished white granite, 8 feet tall, each inscribed with a name of the 40 heroes. Two walls flanking the gate are clad in polished white granite and the flight path is paved with black granite. Beyond the gate is the impact site, shown planted with wildflowers, and the hemlock grove beyond." Paul Murdoch, Architect
