Women have accomplished so much in America and it’s about time they have equal tributes to them instead of only male white men. I can’t wait for the tribute to Obama and our first female President Hillary! My female librarian colleague who showed us Arlington National Cemetery was particularly proud of this memorial to women because her mom had served... More

Completed in 1997 the memorial recognizes the critical roles women have performed in America's military. It contains a series of exhibits about the contributions of women to national defense.

This museum is located within the formal entrance structure to Arlington National Cemetery. The designers have worked hard, the the organization of the space and the materials on view seem to be an afterthought - but a start - toward recognizing the contributions of women who have served in the military. The cemetery is far more beautiful and interesting, but... More

On this gray, windy & rainy day of my visit to Arlington Cemetary, my spirits were uplifted when I saw this tribute honoring the contributions of women in our military services. Having served with many dedicated & competent female nurses & medics in the USAF Medical Corp, they are deserving of this honor. Thank you for your service!

This place shows some of the awards given to the women in the US military and highlights the role women played during some wars (e.g. WWII). It is not a large museum, but it's worth seeing if you're in the area (Arlington Nat'l Cemetery).

Whilst walking around the cemetery I came upon this site and on entering to find a wonderful exhibit dedicated to the women of the armed services who gave themselves to the US Military and its cause. On reading their stories on how they felt during their experiences. A glimpse into history. A delight.
