Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will gather Tuesday morning on the White House lawn for a moment of silence. Afterwards, they’ll attend a memorial at the Pentagon. In the afternoon, Obama will visit with wounded service members and their families at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Vice President Joe Biden will be in Somerset County, Pa., for a service remembering the victims of Flight 93. In New York, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will be at the World Trade Center Memorial.

White House spokesman Jay Carney announced the plans aboard Air Force One as Obama left North Carolina the morning after his convention speech.

If he came to NY you'd all complain that he doesn't respect the military because he should have stayed in DC and visited the Pentagon.

Spot on! There's some people that won't give this man credit for ANYTHING he does! They're irrational hatred of him, blinds them to anything he does RIGHT! And it's frustrating trying to explain to those living in a fantasy world, that the President is only ONE MAN, and can only show up at one place at a time! lol
