The Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation is honored to host the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues Wreath-laying Ceremony on May 22, 2013, at 9:00 a.m. The event, the 16th annual, honors the nation’s servicewomen and women veterans for their courage and achievements and pays tribute to those women who have died while on duty serving the United States. The year’s event is co-hosted by Representatives Kristi Noem and Doris Matsui. The women members of the U.S. House of Representatives have been paying tribute to the nation’s servicewomen in this way since 1998, just a few months following the Women’s Memorial’s dedication. In addition to the congresswomen, women from each service branch will also be participating. The event is free and open to the public.

For more information, call 703-533-1155 or 800-222-2294. The Women’s Memorial, located at the gateway to Arlington National Cemetery, is readily accessible by Metro (Blue Line) and paid parking is available.

The Women In Military Service For America Memorial is the nation’s only major memorial honoring all servicewomen, past and present. Featuring an exhibit gallery, theater and Register of women who have served, the Memorial is open to the public, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., daily.
