Description EN

The listed coordinates will bring you to the most prominent feature of the Air Force Memorial - the three spires.


The three stainless steel spires soar skyward, the tallest reaching a height of 270 feet.  The three spires evoke the image of the precision “bomb burst” maneuver performed by the Thunderbirds.


The three spires also represent the three core values of the Air Force - integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all that is done - and the Air Force’s total force - active, guard and reserve.


Somewhere on the grounds of the Memorial is a quote by General "Tooey".  In order to claim a find, e-mail me with this general's full name (as given at the Memorial) and the text of his quote. 

 

In addition, in order to log a find, you need to have physically visited this cache's location. In other words, please no armchair logging.

 

Check http://www.airforcememorial.org/memorial/location.asp for hours and directions. When this cache was created the hours were 8 a.m. – 11 p.m. April 1 – September 30 and 8 a.m. – 9 p.m. October 1 – March 31. There is a posted guard and I would not suggest attempting this cache outside of operating hours.
