Having a place to visit that recognizes all the wonderful things women have done to support this country is truly a blessing. To think no federal funding was provided for this. There needs to be more publicity about it.

Nice and impressive exposure. The place itself is quite and not crowded. Enjoy its cool air and learn a little bit more, after walking around the Cemetery.

When touring Arlington Cemetery, the Women in Military Service for America Memorial, is an interesting Memorial to tour with some very interesting facts. There were several facts that I was not at all aware of, and the workers were very friendly and helpful.

This is part of the Arlington Cemetery. What an array of information and memorabilia honoring the women who have served in our country's military. I loved being able to see photographs, articles of clothing and so much more! My kids got some posters and souvenirs from the small gift shop located inside.
