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.

This is one of the first huge things you see before you enter the cemetery. It is just breath taking.

I just love this place. Although I hate war (I am allowed to say that because FDR did) I am blown away by the personal stories of sacrifice, honor, and patriotism on the part of these brave and caring women. May God bless all women who have served their country in this fashion.

A great historic visit that honors the woman of the military. More educational placards would be helpful, maybe they are already there now.

This was simply beautiful and well done. I loved the fountain and the architecture. If you climb to the top you can get a clear view of the Lincoln Memorial.

My mother was in WWII so this was an interesting memorial for me. It was easy to look up her service records. It is a little out of the way but worth the effort if you have a loved one that served in the military.

This is a must see for every young person. It was sad to see so many people walking right past on their way to other sites. It was filled with amazing displays of women and their contribution to our military. Well worth a stop if you are at ANC.

The memorial itself paid tribute to women in Military that travelers should make sure to stop by to say "thank you" softly to those who served the country.
