The first one that comes to mind is Edwards Air Force Base in Maryland.  That is where Air Force One, the president's aircraft lands.

Washington DC has many administrative offices for the Air Force. Not the Pentagon however - that is in Virginia. Do you know what type of work he was doing in 1956? Not everyone was air crew, or maintenance crew. Some were support staff doing civilian types of work but in uniform.
