Women in Military Service to America

The Women in Military Service Memorial commemorates the past, present and future service of women in the armed forces of the United States. The memorial also acknowledges the contributions of women affiliated with the uniformed public health service and organizations during wartime, such as the Red Cross and USO.

It is the only national memorial that venerates the service of all women in every branch of the armed forces throughout the country’s history during times of war and peace. The memorial, by Marion Gail Weiss and Michael Manfredi, was dedicated in October, 1997.

The structure is located at the entrance to Arlington National Cemetery behind the Hemicycle. It includes a fountain, reflecting pool and an education center with an arced roof of glass tablets that are inscribed with quotes from famous women who served in the military. As sunlight shines through the monument’s roof, the quotes are revealed along the walls and floor of the education center. The sun reveals additional quotes as it traverses across the sky.

Visitors can explore the memorial’s education center exhibits, artifacts and Hall of Honor. The memorial also has a 196-seat theater. The memorial’s organizers are actively compiling a database of the names and experiences of women who have served. Visitors can access the military history and photos of individual women through this database.
