    Surrounding Areas
    The Pentagon is located across the Potomac River from Washington D.C. in Arlington, Virginia making our Nation's Capital the closest major city to the base. There are no shortages of things to do in the D.C. metro area, with all the national monuments, museums, restaurants, clubs, parks and historical landmarks, residents won't have to travel far for outings. Commutes in Arlington can be reasonable in good traffic - most of the area should be within 20 minutes of base, although traffic can affect that very easily.

    About the Installation
    The Pentagon serves as the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense and is the world's largest office building by floor area with over 6.5 million square feet. Over 23,000 military personnel and civilians are assigned to the Pentagon. The building, itself, has six zip codes assigned to it by the United States Postal Service due to its immense size. The Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and four service branches have their own designated zip code.
