A beam from the destroyed World Trade Center has arrived at its northern Indiana destination escorted by a parade of motorcyclists that authorities estimated at nearly 10,000.
       

The Elkhart Truth reports the beam with an American flag draped over it arrived Saturday afternoon at the Osolo Township Fire Department. It will become part of a memorial to the 2001 terrorist attacks.        
The motorcycle escort consisted of members of the Patriot Guard and other riders, many carrying smaller flags fastened to their cycles.
       
The newspaper says a man and a woman in the honor guard from the Elkhart chapter of the Disabled American Veterans collapsed in the 90-degree heat and received medical attention from Osolo medics at the fire station.
