A memorial will be displayed every time you drive towards the Pentagonia and 14th street bridge. Arches are similar to aircrafts in flight.

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.

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.
