I served in USAF 1966 -1971. I was stationed at Andrews AFB 1967-8. This beautiful monument captures that glory of flight.

Not too many tourists have this on their radar, which is bad because this is a must-see. A nice memorial to the men and women of the Air Force, and a nice view, too, of the surrounding area.

If there were nothing but the spires, this place would be beautiful. When you get the the base, there is alot more to see. Loved it.

The spires are amazing works of art depicting the missing man formation flown when we lose a brother in arms. Word of advice don't stand in center and try to look straight up you will fall over. Also stay off the grass.

This new memorial is just right to salute the history and present mission of the U.S. Air Force. Three silver arcs rise up dramtically to replicate contrails. Also a good spot to hear the AF band in concert.

We weren't aware of this memorial but we could see it from our hotel window at the Residence Inn Pentagon City. It is well worth the visit. The tall structures represent the Burst Maneuver done by the Thunderbirds.

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.
