He’s also not usually in the position he was in Friday.
A big crowd gathered at TVA’s Kingston Fossil Plant for the arrival of a flatbed truck carrying pieces of steel from the World Trade Center.
The steel will be part of a 9/11 memorial at the fossil plant.
Benson said he knew three people who died during the terrorist attacks in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001. He mentioned them during the ceremony.
