About Women in Military Service for America Memorial

The Women In Military Service For America Memorial (Women’s Memorial) is the only major national memorial honoring all women who have defended America throughout history. We are proud to recognize their devoted patriotism and bravery as an integral part of our national heritage.

Our offices serve as a repository for the memorabilia of women who have served in or with the US Armed Forces from the American Revolution to the present time. Our historians and curators conduct seminal research on the history of servicewomen, placing their experience within its historical context.
