WASHINGTON (AP) -- Nearly two dozen Pentagon workers returned Thursday to offices rebuilt after being destroyed in the September 11 terrorist attacks.

"It's like I'm bringing somebody in and saying, 'I want to show you my office that's been destroyed,' but it hasn't been. It's exactly the same as it was on September 10," said Peter M. Murphy, the top lawyer for the Marine Corps. "So it's just kind of an eerie feeling."

Murphy was one of 22 workers who returned to their offices in the rebuilt section of the Pentagon. The $500 million reconstruction project is nearly complete, although construction workers still must finish interior work on the 400,000 square feet of rebuilt office space.
