This statute is beautiful and depicts the nurturing and helping nature of women who served in Vietnam. It's in a quiet area and it's nice to sit on the benches and pay tribute to these heros.

This is one of several Vietnam era memorials. Make sure you see all, not just the Wall. Allow at least an hour.

It's as if women's contribution to the war effort was an afterthought with this overly dramatic memorial which is also out of the way and easily overlooked. Women may not have been fighting on the front line but, they deserve something better.

It was a very realistic tribute to the nurses who came to the aid of our soldiers during a very tough war.

This statue is right next to the main Vietnam memorial and you are likely to walk right past it. I would recommend taking the time to view it since most DC visitors will be right next to it at some point during their visit.

This is a beautiful memorial to all the women who served in the Vietnam war. The sculpture is quite small but conveys the horror of war and the mercy and compassion shown by the women nurses during the conflict.

A small memorial to women that served in the Vietnam war--close to the Vietnam Memorial. You can't miss it. There are some benches close by to take a rest in the shade.

Very Emotional rendering of the service provided by Nurses in the Viet Nam War. You can feel the fear, and compassion these women brought to our Fighting men, in their expressions

The District definitely feels like a man's world, and the small sculpture of the nurses at a distance from the V-shaped granite wall of the "main" Vietnam Veterans' Memorial helps to underscore this. The sculpture is nicely done, as is the small tribute to Eleanor...More
