U. S. Air Force Memorial, Arlington VA

U. S. Air Force Memorial, Arlington VA

The Air Force Memorial is located just north of the Pentagon in Arlington Virginia and is one of the newest memorials in the Washington DC area, dedicated by George Bush on October 14, 2006. 

The Memorial is 270 feet high and consists of three soaring arcs that evoke an image of jet flighters. The arcs also represent the USAF’s three core values: “Integrity first, Service before self, and Excellence in all we do”. The spires are asymmetrical, and each is a different height so that the view of the Memorial changes from every angle.
