This tribute to Women of all branches of the service is very well done. It seems to give justice to all branches of the service and numerous life saving jobs they all had in peacetime and in war

A good location, easy to get to. I was expecting something bigger and more dramatic. I felt that even though the location was good, when you have the more majestic and powerful Vietnam, Korean, and WW2 memorials the Women's memorial is lacking.

Carved out in front of Arlington National Cemetery, this memorial is a fitting tribute to the women who supported and served in the various wars in which the US has been involved. It took a number of years for the nation to realize that women could be "officially" involved with a war effort as enlisted women or officers, even though... More
