Located at the Arlington National Cemetery it was very quiet and I learned quite a lot about the women who have served our country since the Civil War. Thank you for your service.
As I have two daughters it was a nice touch. If it is a cold or wet day the memorial makes a good stop to relax and warm up.

It's so easy to miss. It's the ceremonial structure on Memorial Drive that is directly in front of you before you make that left turn into Arlington Cemetery. Inside that structure you will find a memorial dedicated to the women who served in the military. There are many displays of uniforms, artifacts, equipment, documents, and so much more. The exhibits are very well laid out, and you can see that a lot of thought went into making it so special. It takes less than an hour to see everything but it could take more depending on your interests. Whatever amount of time you spend, don't miss going up to the terrace level to see the view of Memorial Drive and Arlington Cemetery. It's a beautiful view.

This is an absolutely awesome place to see. I think it is a must see if you want to see pride in the military. I was able to look myself up which made me feel special.
You have a great view for the second floor of the Tomb of the Unknown and Arlington Cemetery.

This memorial is dedicated to all the women who have served in the military. It meant a lot to us since my mom was a Captain in WWII and received several Purple Hearts. She never made it to Arlington to see it but she was able to see pictures of it.

As ex-service personnel we found this memorial particularly moving. The memorial is in the grounds of Arlington but does not get advertised so not many people seem to be aware of ots existence. The memorial is very well done and there is a great deal of very moving accounts of real life experiences from some of the women mentioned in the memorial. More should be made of this gem of an exhibition which is extremely interesting. Go visit and pay your respects you will not regret it.
