Geocache Description:

Through the efforts of the Town of Lisbon Fire Department a piece of one of the World Trade Center Towers was brought here to create a memorial tribute to their fallen brothers and all others who died on that day. The memorial was created through donations of labor and materials by local businesses and contractors. I have been in the process of creating or not creating this cache for almost three months now. I struggled with whether this is an appropriate place for a cache and in the end decided that it is. I hope you visit here with more than the intention of just getting another "found it" log. It is a truly moving experience to stand at the Memorial and I hope that everyone who visits appreciates it's true meaning. Thanks to Martin of the GoldieDiggers for supplying the final container and placing it. I will make the puzzle easy so if you can't find it cache blame him.

The cache can be found at:

N43 10.(025 + xxx) xxx = the number of police officers and firefighters who died at the twin towers

W088 12.(569 + yyy) yyy = the number of Pentagon military and civilian workers + people on Flight 77 who died
