President's Welcome


Welcome to the new Women In Military Service For America Foundation web site! The Women’s Memorial is dedicated to all military women – past and present and future – and we wanted to improve on-line information about YOUR memorial.

Our web site is intended to give you a glimpse into the fabulous space that is both a memorial honoring and remembering the service of our military women and a museum dedicated to educating the public and empowering future generations with stories of limitless possibilities that await them. We have collected amazing and irreplaceable artifacts from women’s service across the ages as well as personal stories from hundreds of thousands of women who have worn the uniforms of our nation.

As we approach the 20th anniversary of the Memorial’s dedication we continually try to improve our connection to the constituents we serve and to the entire Nation. I hope you will be able to visit the memorial in person and experience the stories we hold in the registry as our part of the national historic narrative.

The Foundation’s vision for the future is that the memorial will be a resource and education center that can reach beyond the granite walls of the building. One of the ways we are working toward is goal is by rebuilding this web site. By no means is it finished or fully updated but we welcome you to our site – under construction – but no hard hats needed. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay tuned to current activities at the Memorial and within the Foundation that is dedicated to preserving it.

Finally, remember that if you, your wife, sister, daughter, niece, neighbor or any woman you know is serving or has served, – or if any of them are thinking about serving – this is OUR memorial.
