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.
