This is one of those often overlooked memorials in DC - but please do not forget this incredible gem. This memorial shares the stories of the countless women in the military - and some of their stories which are emotional, heartbreaking and motivating.

This was our last stop after a whole day at Arlington. I regret that we didn't stop here first and spend more time. I didn't realize when we first entered Arlington that there was an indoor component and so we figured we'd just walk by on the way out. I don't know if the exhibits inside change. We were lucky...

Wonderful exhibits highlight the service of America's Women in the military! Also a bathroom and water fountain inside and a small gift shop. Get a nice priced and sized Iwo Jima statue here! More people should go inside and see what's there.

The building itself is nicely designed with great lighting. I enjoyed all the exhibits, a walk through the history of women in the military.

This memorial is a testament to women who have given their lives to the United States from the Revolution War to present day. As a woman, it was emotional to read the stories of the women whose service was ignored by our government for year, especially those who paid their way home after their service. Side note, this was the... More

A rather small, but nevertheless interesting memorial to women's role in the military. Mostly ignored by hordes of tourists. In my opinion, you should visit it even if you don't care about its contents. It offers a nice ACed environment to cool down after roaming the cemetery on a hot summer day.

One of the first memorials that you will see when traveling the tour-mobile. Short walk from the visitors center

Unfortunately many Arlington tourists/visitors overlook this wonderful tribute. Consider taking time from your day to learn about these patriotic women. You'll learn more than you thought you would, I'm certain. RIP Specialist Nicole Frye, KIA, Feb, 2004, Iraq. From Lena, WI.
