Fodor's Review

Dedicated in 2006, this memorial honors the service and sacrifices of the men and women of the U.S. Air Force and its predecessor organizations of the U.S. Army. Three curved spires—up to 270 feet tall—represent the bomb burst maneuver famously performed by the USAF Thunderbird Demonstration Team. The memorial is just uphill from the Pentagon, beside the Navy Annex on Columbia Pike, and easy to see from a distance.
