I'm a female veteran and it was great to see all the artifacts related to the service of women. Definitely a must see!

Location needs to be included on other points of interest maps around the city. I figured it was no longer open.

They were as important to winning any war as the men, so let's it forget. This is an excellent way to remind everyone.

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.
