The memorial is on a higher ground. The walking is quite a feat itself. But the view will be worth it. You can enjoy Pentagon and DC from afar. Moreover, the memorial has unique design and is stunning in its own right.

This memorial is great! It’s not only nice for remembering our airmen, but also a nice venue to view Washington DC sites including Washington Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, and The Pentagon.

While one can enjoy this memorial from a distance, take a moment to go and visit up close. There is parking at the memorial. It is lovely any time of day - even the evening hours.

The monument itself is an artistic impression of the “Missing Man” formation. It is visible from the National Mall if you know what you are looking for. It is located in Arlington and overlooks the Pentagon.

Excellent parking and it is free. There is a security guard on duty as well. Flat area, easy for elderly or handicapped access. Not crowded at all the day we went.
