About Us

The Women In Military Service For America Memorial, at the Ceremonial Entrance to Arlington National Cemetery, is the only major national memorial honoring all women who have defended America throughout history. Visitors to the Women’s Memorial experience the collective history of women in the military, along with the individual stories of registered servicewomen. The Women’s Memorial mission is to: 

·     recognize all women who have served in or with the United States Armed Forces—past, present and future;

·     document the experiences of these women and tell their stories of service, sacrifice and achievement;

·     make their contributions a visible part of our history;

·     illustrate their contribution, equal to that of men, in defense of our nation; and

·     serve as inspiration for others. 

The Women’s Memorial was dedicated on October 18, 1997, and is endorsed by the Departments of Defense, Transportation, Veterans Affairs and Interior. The Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation (the Foundation) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization that depends on the donations of individuals, corporations, organizations, and state and local governments to fulfill its mission. The Foundation has recently completed its transition from a founder-led organization and is now looking for a President to strengthen the Foundation’s future and ensure an even broader audience recognizes the past and continuing service of military women.
