It was very interesting to see and read about all the women who have served in the United States Military.

Highly recommend stopping in while at Arlington. As a female veteran I found the memorial had much historical information and the park guide was very helpful.

Women were involved in many aspects of the war experience. However, since I am a nurse I was most interested in the story of the nurses in each war. Very nicely done. A wonderful tribute to those women who served.

This memorial is so worth visiting. There is so much history about women in the military. Inside there is a great display of uniforms over the years, a gift shop with lots of cute items, bathrooms, and the beautiful memorial outside.

So I don't know why I didn't know about this place before but it took watching a documentary about women who have served to tell me that there was a memorial for Women in Military Service. It is a great place to read about and...More

As a female veteran, donated when this museum was still being built. There isn't any noticeable advertisement when you enter Arlington, and it isn't mentioned on the tram tours. Too bad, because it's worthwhile and should be seen.

The Women in Military Service Memorial is close to the entrance of Arlington and pays tribute not just to the nurses and behind-the-scenes women in the early days of armed conflict but also the women who have served on the front lines as well.

I recommend taking the time to read all the displays at this memorial. Vast amounts of history about a segment of our military service members population that is often overlooked or forgotten.
