United States Air Force Memorial Interactive Kiosks

Officially opened in October 2006, the United States Air Force Memorial is located just outside the Nation’s capital in Arlington, Virginia. A national place of pride, reverence and remembrance, the Air Force Memorial celebrates the history and valor of the Men and Women of the United States Air Force and its Heritage Organizations.

An integral part of this breathtaking monument is the interactive touch-screen array designed and installed by Planned Legacy. Visitors can use one of three outdoor interactive LCD displays to view names and profiles of Air Force veterans, lists of Memorial Charter Members and photos, and a narrative of Air Force history. Visitors can also use an attached credit card swipe to make spontaneous contributions electronically to the Memorial association.

“A key part of the Memorial is the Charter Sponsor Registry,” said Major General (Ret.) Ed Grillo, President of the United States Air Force Memorial Foundation. “We received more than 140,000 donations, many of them online. We owe all our sponsor donors a great debt of gratitude for helping us to establish this Memorial, and to Planned Legacy’s interactive system for allowing more than 140,000 names to be displayed at the site. Planned Legacy was selected to do this job because of their past performance, our confidence in the company and the fact that they offer the best value for the task at hand.”

Central to the design of the Air Force Memorial, which was created by James Ingo Freed, one of America’s finest architects, are three stainless steel spires that soar skyward, the highest of which ascends 270′ above the 3-acre elevated promontory site. The three spires represent the 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.

Other elements of the Memorial include a bronze Honor Guard (representing all the people of the Air Force), inscription walls and an open glass wall of remembrance, all on a landscaped memorial park and parade ground overlooking the nation’s capital.
