We actually found this Memorial by accident by taking a wrong turn.
Unfortunately, there seemed little signage and the exhibit appeared to be closed, which was a shame as I would have liked to have gained more information and learn about the women in military service.
Having said that, wonderful memorial and very pleasantly quiet.

Attended a military retirement ceremony here and we were most impressed. It is near the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, so make sure you stop HERE, too. VERY educational displays of the MANY contributions that women in military service to the United States of America and to our allies around the globe. ANYONE visiting this area should stop here and spend 60 minutes to be overwhelmed by the power that women bring to the armed forces !

This is a nice memorial dedicated to all of the women who have served. Simple and easy access. Air conditioned and the displays are lovely/well put together. Dedicated to their military service through the years. Some displays are very emotional. Dedicated to those that have lost their lives. One specifically dedicated to a gal who recently lost her life in Iraq. Very emotional. Her family donated very personally items. Definitely worth visiting if you're in Arlington Cemetery.

What is there is a great tribute to the women who have served our country through military service, but it seems only like a cursory overview. I would like to see more extensive coverage of all of the groups. It seems rather hit-and-miss, possibly because these are the areas where they have people interested or willing to tell stories of experiences. Some of the material will give you a tidbit and leave you saying "Wait, what? I want to know more about this!" Still, it's very good that women finally have a museum like this.

Expecially poignant were messages left by women who had served in Iraq and Afghanistan, including some obviously honoring fallen comrads. Not actually part of the interpretive material, but some of the most emotionally moving material in the museum.

This is located in Arlington National Cemetery and pays respect to the Women in Military Service. It is what you think it would be. Unfortunately, I do not think that they do enough to highlight this memorial or make it more interesting.
