“A must see for younger generations”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Most people I know do not realize there is a women's memorial at Arlington until they go there. It is a must-see if not just for educational purposes, especially those who are unaware of the contributions made by women in our Armed Forces. It is a moving memorial and worth taking the time to see when going to Arlington.

An incredible opportunity to celebrate the significant role that women have played in our country's military. Often overlooked, this memorial provides an excellent opportunity to share the whole story of our military's greatness.

“Women in the Military Memorial. Worth including in your DC tour.”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

We were there looking for an aunt. There are ways you can look up people which was very helpful so we found her! Nice displays of women in military throughout US history. It's actually easy to find - right at the entrance to Arlington Cemetery.

“A Monument Many People Miss”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

I've been to DC many times and this time I walked down both sides of the mall and had the opportunity to see this memorial. I'm glad I saw it, it's not so large and easy to miss.
