Sad, but I hadn't been to DC since about 1988, and I had no idea this Memorial existed. It is an awesome site though, and what a great view of the City, as I approached from the South with two high school kids who had not been to DC before the day of our visit. I always felt sort of a connection to The Air Force, being a 22 year Army vet, and we used to be the same branch until the Korean War, you know. Just an excellent memorial, much more impressive in person than I was expecting. Oh, stumbled on the required information in just about the last place I looked! Thanks for the Virt. Not exactly the greatest pic, sorry.

Have been here before.  One of my favorite memorials to see when driving on 395.  Dropped by again to get the answer.

2422.  My third OCUS cache today and my third visit to the AF Memorial.  I always  enjoy the site, though.  Thanks for giving me another excuse to stop by.

I have been to this Memorial several times. It's quite a sight to stand in the middle of the spires and look up. Mrs. sfcchaz enjoyed it very much as well, being her first time here (Awesome; as she put it) . Thanks for brining me back. Email on the way.

I'm glad I checked before coming in at 6:15 in the morning.  :-)  I mananged to get out of the office for a quick trip over to the memorial later on and after searching around a little bit, finally found the appropriate quote.  With a virtual, it's hard to say "First to Find" but I found it approximately 10:35 am, 9/29/10. 

I went to this memorial previously for a different Geocache, and it's still breath-taking to view.  I remember watching it being built, seeing the pillars go up.  What a sight! 

Thanks for another reason to get out here, Rob3k

Updated description with the AFM hours at the suggestion of a potential seeker.  Good idea!
