Dedicated to the more than 3 million women who have served our country, the Military Women’s Memorial is located at the gateway to Arlington National Cemetery and is the nation’s only major national memorial to honor all military women—from the American Revolution to the present day. Opened to the public in 1997, the Memorial’s award-winning design was accomplished by the architectural firm of Weiss/Manfredi and incorporates as its façade the historic Hemicycle—a retaining wall dedicated in 1932 as part of the Memorial Bridge project and originally intended as the ceremonial entrance to Arlington National Cemetery. Our Memorial is located on the western terminus of Memorial Drive and is situated on the historic line connecting the Lincoln Memorial and Arlington House.
