Beautiful inside with the multi-colored stained glass. Light was streaming into Protestant chapel. Catholic chapel was beautiful also and good for prayerful moments. Buddhist "refuge" room was prayerful. Jewish area also was beautiful. Muslim area was not open at the time we visited.

The Academy is a must see when in the Springs. I live here, but always love going to the Academy. It is a wonderful military facility situated against the beautiful Front Range. They are training some of our future pilots, defenders of our freedom.
