Loved this Memorial. I loved that it not only remembers service of women in past wars and those that have died,but all those who have served and living women who are serving now. Fantastic displays and videos. Just brilliant.

Although the Women in Military Service for America Memorial was off the "mall" it was well worth the walk. My niece who is retired from the Navy took us there and she was very proud of the memorial.

The location is at entrance to Arlington Cemetery. Once you are inside, there is a lot to see. You can not help but get a patriotic feeling. The skylights reflect quotes from famous people regarding women in the military, past and present. If you are near the cemetery, it should be a must-visit, just like the Tomb of the Unknown... More

This may not be a large space but it is a magnificent tribute to the women who have served in the military. Don't miss the view from the top - looking down a Memorial Avenue to the Lincoln Memorial and on to the Washington Monument. A must see if you are going to see the Memorials in DC!

This is on the mall, and near other memorials. A smaller memorial, but impressive in its meaning. (Near Korean and Vietnam memorials)

This memorial was special to women in the military. It was very nice. I did not walk through it entirely but what I did see was a beautiful tribute.

A good memorial, but missing one element, when I was in the service, their were lots of women in the Army Security Agency as analysts and linguists, yet this role was unremarked on. Their service, at a time that women were having a hard time breaking out of the traditional roles of nurse, was a real eye opener to me.

As a former reservist and a woman, I found it a fitting tribute. About time. Should be seen as part of Arlington Cemetary.
