Went to a funeral at the Air Force Academy and it was very impressive. The chapels were both beautiful. They also do a great job with security. Would love to go back to take another look.

We visited the chapel and the gift store. The chapel was quite moving and the stories fascinating. The background behind this academy is also interesting.
