Women are often overlooked in their contributions to the defense of the nation. Most often, men and their sons come to mind when speaking of military service... not mothers and daughters.

The history of women in the military and their service is... More

Museum is dedicated to women who served their country. I entered my Mother's military info into their computer history.

It is a blatant disservice and disrespect that the memorial looks as run down and trashy as it does. Put as much time and love into that memorial as you do to JFK and it would be something worthy of their sacrifice.

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
