“A good site with one element missing”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

A good memorial, but missing one element, when I was in the service, their were lots of women in the Army Security Agency as analysts and linguists, yet this role was unremarked on. Their service, at a time that women were having a hard time breaking out of the traditional roles of nurse, was a real eye opener to me.

“Fitting tribute”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

As a former reservist and a woman, I found it a fitting tribute. About time. Should be seen as part of Arlington Cemetary.

“Thankful”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Being a female veteran, I'm very thankful that more has been done to identify and note our service. This memorial is very nicely done. You should take the time to look around, see if anyone you now is noted, and register yourself as a female vet.

“Quiet and small museum”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

Located at the Arlington National Cemetery it was very quiet and I learned quite a lot about the women who have served our country since the Civil War. Thank you for your service.
As I have two daughters it was a nice touch. If it is a cold or wet day the memorial makes a good stop to relax and warm up.
