Owner description: The AF Memorial was dedicated on October 14, 2006 to honor the men and women of the AF and its heritage organizations. It is located in Arlington, Virginia, adjacent to Arlington National Cemetery and the Pentagon. Since its opening, it has been a place of honor and remembrance. It offers a place for the community to learn and appreciate the rich history of the AF through displays, AF Band performances, Memorial/Veterans Day commemorations and veteran-related events.

For a tourist on foot this is a very hard memorial to get to but well worth the effort. This memorial with this stricking three pronged leaves reaching into the sky can be seen for miles. The memorial sits on top of a small hill but has been badly isolated by the surrounding roads and is a good walk from the nearest metro station. Visit this memorial after you visits the September 11 memorial at the Pentagon.

Go Air Force, deserved recognition long before the memorial was created

The spires are quite unusual, but as you look closely at the Memorial it may remind you of the Thunderbirds!

The three soaring arcs of the Air Force Memorial are a fitting tribute to our youngest service, though I cannot figure why it's on the Navy Annex. The view from its base is no more impressive than seeing it in the distance, and it's immediate vicinity isn't special. Unless you're going to the Pentagon, view it from across the river, maybe from near the FDR Memorial.

Nice view of the DC area from this memorial. Never really too busy and is easy to find, normally. Just follow the signs
