President's Welcome

Major General Dee Ann McWilliams, USA (Ret.) Women's Memorial President

Welcome to the Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation's Web site. This web site is about the Women's Memorial at the gateway to Arlington National Cemetery.

The Women's Memorial is a unique, living memorial honoring all military women—past, present and future—and is the only major national memorial honoring women who have served in our nation's defense during all eras and in all services.

Work on the Memorial was in progress for about 10 years and it was dedicated October 18, 1997. Some 200,000 people visit the Memorial annually. We hope you'll visit, too, when you're in Washington, DC.

Thank you for visiting our Web site. We welcome your comments and will respond as quickly as possible.
