This is a monument at Arlington cemetery. You will see it on the tram tour and can see it if you do your own walking tour.

This monument to women in the military is very near the entrance to Arlington National Cemetery. It is definitely worth a visit while at Arlington. The view from the top is great!

This is fairly new and we were able to look up a family member that was in the Army Nurse Corp at Pearl Harbor. Interesting exhibits focusing on the Women that served our country. Check this out if you are touring the National Cemetery.
