  • The courage and dedication of many American women are on display here; but the interior architecture doesn't quite live up to expectations based on the grand exterior. 
  • The women's memorial is one of the most wonderful memorials ever. I like that you can go in and find friends who you served with. The etchings in the glass have meaning and touched me. I Was able to b...  more »
  • Appropriate memorial for the women who served in so many capacities during combat. Take some quiet time and wander through this memorial.

  • Very nice and informative. Women in the military and service to our country, everyone should know the history.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Nice memorial a must see.
