• Operational Security (OPSEC). All personnel (including families and friends of service members) have a responsibility to ensure that no information that might put our military members in jeopardy or would be of use to our adversaries is posted to websites that are readily accessible to the public.
Not surprisingly, that information includes, among other things:
− technical information
− operation plans
− troop movement schedules
− current and future locations of military units and ships
− descriptions of overseas bases
− details of weapons system
− discussions of areas frequented by service members overseas
− Other information that's not as obvious but should also not be discussed in an open forum includes daily military activities and operations, equipment status, unit morale, and results of operations. Any of these topics, if released in an open medium, have the ability to provide our adversaries opportunities to harm our military members.

Air Force Memorial reviews
My family spent some time here on a morning with friends. This is a nice, unique memorial to the USAF. It’s not a huge footprint, but it’s worth a visit. It also sits on a hill next to Arlington... more »
Looks simple but one you get under it and look up it's pretty cool. The view of DC from here is great as well. Another quick stop but worth it. more »
I was fortunate enough to be selected to participate in laying there wreath at the Tomb Of The Unknown Solider, which is what brought me to the DC area. I took this opportunity to visit the Air Force Memorial. We actually stopped by to watch the fireworks from the hillside as well. It's an awesome tribute to the Air Force. They can be proud of this place.
A beautiful monument to the men and women of the Air Force. This was not originally on our itinerary but we noticed it while visiting the Pentagon and decided to go. It was well worth it.
