  1. The Pentagon By Qwynton B. Evans Jef Benigno Steven Brooks Mike Thomas

  2. The Pentagon is the headquarters of the United StatesDepartment of Defense. It was dedicated on January 15, 1943 and it is the world's largest office building. It was built from 680,000 tons of sand and gravel dredged from the nearby Potomac River that were processed into 435,000 cubic yards (330,000 m³) of concrete and molded into the pentagon shape. Very little steel was used in its design due to the needs of the war effort. At five acres (20,000 m²), the central plaza in the Pentagon is the largest "no-salute, no-cover" area (where hats need not be worn and salutes are not required) in the world. The open space in the center is informally known as ground zero, a nickname originating during the Cold War when it was thought of as the most likely target of a nuclear missile. At the center of the plaza is the "Ground Zero Cafe," a snack bar. One 'legend' states that due to the heavy traffic into this cafe (evidenced by satellite imagery), Soviet intelligence concluded it was a center for highly secret research. History of the Pentagon
