Wonderful exhibits highlight the service of America's Women in the military! Also a bathroom and water fountain inside and a small gift shop. Get a nice priced and sized Iwo Jima statue here! More people should go inside and see what's there.

The building itself is nicely designed with great lighting. I enjoyed all the exhibits, a walk through the history of women in the military.

This memorial is a testament to women who have given their lives to the United States from the Revolution War to present day. As a woman, it was emotional to read the stories of the women whose service was ignored by our government for year, especially those who paid their way home after their service.

A rather small, but nevertheless interesting memorial to women's role in the military. Mostly ignored by hordes of tourists. In my opinion, you should visit it even if you don't care about its contents. It offers a nice ACed environment to cool down after roaming the cemetery on a hot summer day.

One of the first memorials that you will see when traveling the tour-mobile. Short walk from the visitors center

Unfortunately many Arlington tourists/visitors overlook this wonderful tribute. Consider taking time from your day to learn about these patriotic women. You'll learn more than you thought you would, I'm certain. RIP Specialist Nicole Frye, KIA, Feb, 2004, Iraq. From Lena, WI.

This is off to the right from the main administration building where you buy tickets. We (my wife and our two boys, 16 and 18) only stopped in for few minutes as we were short on time but we would spend more time next time we visit. Lots of information, some excellent history and well presented (exhibits, film clips, artifacts,... More
