Washington DC's newest memorial now open!
The newest Washington DC area memorial, the Air Force Memorial, is now open! This new area attraction honors the millions of patriotic men and women who have distinguished themselves in the United States Air Force and its predecessor organizations, including the Aeronautical Division, US Signal Corps; the Aviation Section, US Signal Corps; the Division of Military Aeronautics, Secretary of War; the Army Air Service; the Army Air Corps; and the Army Air Forces.
The Memorial is located in Arlington, Virginia across the Potomac from Washington DC at a promontory point of land known as the Naval Annex. The site overlooks the Pentagon from the southwest. The design of the memorial is unique, even for Washington’s standards! Central to the design are three stainless steel spires which soar skyward. The highest of the spires will ascend 270' above the 3-acre elevated promontory site. Other key elements of the Memorial include a bronze Honor Guard, inscription walls, and an open glass Chamber of Contemplation, all landscaped to create a memorial park and parade ground overlooking the nation’s capital.
