Visit The Women In Military Service Memorial And Pay Tribute To Our Female Veterans

The Women in Military Service for America Memorial(WIMSA) was established by the U.S. Federal government in 1985 to honor women who have served in the United States Armed Forces.

The memorial is located at the western end of Memorial Avenue at the entrance to Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va. It is the only major national memorial of its kind in the country that showcases the service of women in the military, preserving moments and stories of military women from the Revolutionary War through to the present. The structure features exhibits, photos, artifacts, and history material.

Visitors at WIMSA first encounter the Hemicycle, a structure built in 1932 to be a ceremonial entrance to the cemetery. They are immediately taken by the beautiful views and the building’s Court of Valor with its reflecting pool and fountain. Every Memorial Day and Veterans Day, the Court of Valor is the site of formal military honors, and a woman from every military service tells her story and pays tribute to women who have served before.

The memorial is open from 8 am to 5 pm every day.
