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.

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!

There's also a way which brings you to the terrace. There's some view there. Also some good words from great women in war (accurate enough?).
