Special Event Parking and Transportation


    • Veterans Day Wreath-laying Ceremony: November 11th at 11:00 a.m.

    Currently, the Air Force Memorial has a challenging parking situation due to the demolition of the Navy Annex buildings and parking lot. However, a parking plan has been developed to accommodate our event visitors for the events above.  There is very limited regular and handicap parking at the Memorial.  Active and physically fit visitors can walk to the Memorial from the public lot on Southgate Road at Columbia Pike or from the Pentagon or Pentagon City Metro stops.
    Handicapped event visitors who park in the lot below can take the trolley to the Memorial.
