Curator's Comment The dust on this cap is not authentic World Trade Center dust. This cap and related uniform attire were donated to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum for an exhibition for the first anniversary of 9/11. Staff at the Intrepid applied manufactured dust to the uniform for purposes of display. The uniform was subsequently transferred to the 9/11 Museum. HIDE
