About the Air Force Memorial

The United States Air Force Memorial honors the service and heritage of the men and women of the United States Air Force and its heritage organizations. The Memorial is located in Arlington, Virginia, on federal property adjacent to Arlington National Cemetery, overlooking the Pentagon at the intersection of Columbia Pike and South Joyce Street.

Three stainless steel spires soar into the sky from the promontory reaching a heights of 402 feet above sea-level. Granite walls contain inscriptions describing valor and values of aviation pioneers supporting the Air Force and its predecessor military organizations.

The Air Force Memorial is the last military service monument to be erected in the National Capital Region and is the last design project of American architect James Ingo Freed. The Air Force Memorial uses architectural design, inscriptions and sculpture to represent the Air Force heritage including those intrepid pioneers in early flight balloon reconnaissance and the advent of manned flight in air and space.

The Air Force Memorial is free and open to the public. Come visit the Memorial at 1 Air Force Memorial Drive, Arlington, Virginia, 22204.
