If you like mystery, suspense, high-security and power all wrapped in a five-corner building, then you will love The Pentagon.

Besides the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and The White House, The Pentagon is the prestigious-headquarters of the United States Dept. of Defense, located in Arlington County, Virginia. "the Pentagon" is often used to refer to the U.S. Dept. of Defense.

Gaining access to The Pentagon not a 'walk in the park'

And if you think it's tough to hack your way inside Fort Knox, then you haven't known true failure until you have tried and failed to gain access to the nation's most-powerful building. Inside the Pentagon, numerous life-changing decisions are made on a daily basis and all for our security.

The security is so tight at the Pentagon, you have to be cleared on several security levels just to get to ask if you can make an appointment with whomever you need to meet.

Tough? You bet. And after 9-1-1, the security has been upgraded more than a few times to make it even tougher for criminals to hack the highly-complex computer system as well as the security system that surrounds this famous building.

Among these important men are Adm. Gary Roughead, Chief of Naval Operations.
