Nine-year-old Christina Taylor Green was born the day the towers fell and will be laid to rest Thursday in Tucson.

She and five others were killed Saturday in a shooting that wounded 13 others, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

A spokesman for the foundation that displays the flag around the country says it's with a New York firefighter who hopes to arrive Wednesday, depending on the storm in the Northeast.
