The Air Force Memorial soars into the sky. This striking and very simple memorial immediately draws your eyes up to the sky, a very fitting tribute to the men and women who have served or are serving our Country in the Air Force. The site overlooks the Pentagon, parts of Arlington National Cemetery and Washington DC in the distance.
