August Break 2015 - Day 22 - Curves

I drove by the curved spires of the Air Force Memorial earlier today and stopped for a few pictures.  It got me wondering what they stood for so I visited the memorial website to find out. 

The spires symbolize many things. The number three is significant to the Air Force because it represents its three core values of integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do. The spires are also reflective of a bomb burst maneuver.  Finally, the three spires also stand for three of four planes performing a Missing Man formation.
