Rising up from a hill into a sky, this monument is walking distance from the Pentagon. The view from the monument overlooks Washington and the monument provides proper memorial to those of the Air Force.

A must stop while we were in the area to see the memorial in honor of my Air Force husband. Very impressive monument to the sky. You can look towards Washington and also back to Arlington Cemetery.

This is truly an eye-catching memorial sight from the highway, and even more amazing close up. Plus, you can get great photo shot of the Pentagon.

We visited it at night and it was a quick stop, but moving nonetheless. I got some great pictures. It is a work that honors our Men and Women in the AF

We didn't plan on seeing this before we came but I'm glad we did. It is striking and beautiful. It stands out as a very unique memorial in the dc area.

Loved everything about it! It is so impressive. Very well kept. Loved the place where you could take a picture of the memorial with F-16s flying over it. It is a very large park with lots of activities going on at certain times. Beautiful views all around the park. Stay at the Americana Hotel. They have a shuttle that will... More

Overlooking the Arlington Cemetery is this tribute. Striking design. We visited during an Honor Flight and were very impressed. It is impressive for the site of an Air Force tribute to have such a beautiful location and views overlooking Washington.

Striking design. Memorial located just outside Arlington Cemetery. We were lucky to be there during an Honor Flight from Texas and watched the ceremony. Beautiful location and views.

Offers one of the best views of DC and Potomac River. Simple memorial - recognizable by three soaring "contrails" that catch light beautifully at sunrise and sunset. When I have visitors, I take them to this spot for a quick orientation of DC - pointing to National Cathedral, Kennedy Center, the bridges spanning the Potomac and a plethora of other... More
