We just got to drive past this on a bus tour while on a Honor Flight from St. Louis, My mom was a WAC in world War II & this meant a lot to her to be recognized for her Service.

This is dedicated to the women who served their country. I had an Aunt who was an Army nurse during WWII and I can really appreciate this for her sake.

This museum is located off to the right near the visitor center at Arlington National Cemetery. It is not yet stuffed full of physical exhibits but it has touch videos that allow you to hear from female soldiers. Clothing is on display. Superb quilts honoring female war dead hang from walls. It is a newish museum and I think as... More

Many interesting items to see in the museum. The former military servicewoman who was our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enhanced my appreciation for what I was seeing. Do not miss the quotations on the rooftop.
