  • Don't miss this on your visit to Arlington. It is uplifting, even funny at times, and really meaningful. You'll leave feeling proud of the Nation's women in uniform!
  • Very nice and informative. Women in the military and service to our country, everyone should know the history.
  • Not just a monument, go inside, it's a museum too (I didn't realize that until I had walked past it a few times on different occasions).
  • The Women in Military Service For America Memorial is the first stop you'll make if you're arriving at Arlington Cemetery by Metro. Inside there are plenty of great exhibits along with a presentation hall where you might catch a lecture on the history of Arlington Cemetery. If you're in to photography then you'll want to make the climb outside to see the amazing view back in to Washington, DC.
  • Great space, wonderful work
