Each of the 5 branches of the military has a side of the pentagon.
the original answer was : It represents the US. military's five branches of service: Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and the Coast Guard. This can't possibly be true, the Air Force was establish in 1947. The Pentagon was built in 1943. ?
because bob named it that... Ok? If you mean the building, it is because it is pentagonal in shape. If you mean the shape, "pentagon" is greek for "five angles". Actually, I think the Pentagon is named so because of the five branches of the military: U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard. And then it was built to be five sided to represent those branches.
well there is a lot of stuff there like offices, computers, bathrooms, peopleAdditional: The Pentagon - known as the workld's largest office building - houses the Department of Defense as well as the top command structures of ALL of the US Military Branches.
The 5 branches of the military - Coast Guard, Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps.
Prior to construction of the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, the Department of War was located in a building adjacent to the White House in what is now known as the Eisenhower Executive Office Building or the "Old Executive Office Building." As the Department of War was transformed into the Defense Department, the various military branches, which had office located all over Washington, DC, some even in temporary trailers, required a central location from which to coordinate the nation's various military operations. The design of the Pentagon allowed the complex to house all of the required personnel in one location in a minimum of space. The Pentagon houses more than 50,000 employees of the Defense Department within its five sided complex. In addition to having five sides, the Pentagon has a series of corridors or concentric rings that allow offices to be stacked horizontally rather than vertically, keeping the height of the building lower. By placing the headquarters, planning, operations, personnel, and other various departments together in one location, the Pentagon allows the various functions of the military to better coordinate and share intelligence, planning, and operations and save on the costs of these functions rather than each branch having their own facilities and personnel.
The Pentagon building in Arlington, Virginia, just outside Washington, DC, is the headquartersof all branches of the US's military forces, and the site of the Department of Defense and theJoint Chiefs of Staff.Each branch of the military... the Army, Navy, etc. ... has a Chief of Staff,and the person at the top of the military structure is the Chairman of theJoint Chiefs of Staff. So far, it's not too surprising, until you go higher ...The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff works for the Secretary of Defense,the cabinet-level office presently held by Robert Gates ... a civilian !The Secretary reports to the President ... also a civilian.The President reports to you and me ... also civilians.

Since a rhombus has four sides, you are asking for the name of a five-sided shape, which is called a pentagon. There is a military building in the USA with the shape of a regular pentagon. It is called The Pentagon. This should help you to remember.
It's the headquarters of the United States Department of Defence, the Federal Government agency which controls the armed forces. Most major decisions involving the military are made here. The building is situated just outside Washington DC in Arlington, Virginia.

There are two major definitions of "pentagon". Here is an example using the definition of "Pentagon - major building in the United States that houses many administrative and strategic offices of the United States military". The lieutenant was informed that his CO was currently assigned to duties at the Pentagon. The other major definition is "pentagon - five sided regular polygon". On the geometry test, the students had to identify which shape was a pentagon.
5 military branches.
A pentagon is a geometric shape with five sides. The pentagon is a building in the United States dealing with the military of the country. I do not think there is a "magic pentagon". However, the pentagram (usually depicted as a star with a circle around it) is a common pagan symbol. These days it is associated with (but not exclusive to) those who practice Witchcraft. The practice of Witchcraft does not always include the practice of magic, nor the other way around.

yesCorrection:No. In Arlington, VA., the Pentagon is the headquarters of the US Department of Defense. It's the world's largest office building as well (Feb 2010).
There is not a symbol for the military because the military is not a branch, there are "branches" of the military. Each of these separate branches have their own symbol. The Department of Defense has a symbol.
