Something I saw off the AP wire just now:

The Navy Seabees, the famed military construction unit, call their tent encampment in the Kuwaiti desert "Camp 93" in memory of the passengers who fought hijackers aboard United Airlines Flight 93, crashing it into a Pennsylvania field on Sept. 11.

"We felt that the folks on United 93 were the first people to fight in the war on terrorism and we wanted to honor them," said Navy Capt. William Rudich, commander of a Seabee regiment.
