President's Welcome

Welcome to the Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation website! The Women’s Memorial is dedicated to all military women — past, present and future.

Our website is intended to give you a glimpse into the fabulous space that is both a memorial honoring and remembering the service our military women and an education center for educating the public and empowering future generations with stories of the limitless possibilities that await them. We have collected amazing and irreplaceable artifacts from women’s service across the ages as well as preserved personal stories in the Register 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 connections 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 Register 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. We plan to develop a virtual tour for those who cannot visit. You can also learn about the extraordinary accomplishments of women veterans and servicewomen by following us on Facebook and Twitter.

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.
