At a ceremony Friday in Leonardtown, St. Mary's County officials and residents remembered the victims and marked the fourth anniversary of the terror attacks on the United States.
When terrorists deliberately crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, eight of the victims were from Southern Maryland:
* Kris Romeo Bishundat, 23, of Waldorf, a Navy petty officer assigned to the Pentagon just three months before the attack.
* Donna Marie Bowen, 42, of Waldorf, a wife and mother of three and a Verizon telephone worker assigned to an Army budgeting office.
* Sharon S. Carver, 38, of Waldorf, a civilian accountant for the Army.
* Angela M. Houtz, 27, of La Plata, a civilian analyst with the Office of Naval Intelligence.
* Shelley A. Marshall, 37, of Marbury, a budget analyst with the Defense Intelligence Agency who left behind a husband and two children.
* Marvin Roger Woods, 57, of Great Mills, a retired Navy communications chief who worked as a civilian communications specialist at the Pentagon.
* John D. Yamnicky Sr., 71, of Waldorf, a retired Navy test pilot who was a passenger aboard the airliner.
* Edmond Young Jr., 22, of Owings, a civilian technician who was assisting a general with a computer problem when the airliner struck the building.
A ceremony is planned for Wednesday at McDonough High School in Pomfret to dedicate the Homeland Park Memorial in honor of Angela Houtz, who was a graduate of the school. Among those expected to attend the 1:30 p.m. ceremony, organizers said, is Capt. Matthew Herbert of the Arlington County Fire Department, whose crews were the first emergency workers to reach the Pentagon after the attack.
