“Near the Pentagon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

If you are in Arlington near the Pentagon or the National Cemetery, this is close and worth a visit. You won't need much time to look around.

“Beautiful and meaningful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Can walk to this from the pentagon station/pentagon memorial in about 10-15 minutes. Impressive to see, excellent inscriptions and values that stimulate reflection. Can see this monument from many places around DC, beautiful. Even includes missing airmen/women wall.

“Good View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Nice memorial with possibly the best view of the city. The monument is pretty cool and can be seen from a lot of places from the city.

“Beautiful spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Not as grandiose as many of the other memorials, but symbolically beautiful in its own way. The view from the spot is spectacular.
