Register Your Story with Military Women’s Memorial

In January 2021, the Military Women’s Memorial (MWM) launched an online campaign to preserve the experiences and history of 3 million servicewomen who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces since the American Revolution. 

The Military Women’s Memorial has created a new website, an easier online registration portal, and eliminated the fee for registering a woman veteran. The MWM is the only historical repository in our country, which documents the experiences of women in the military. Located at the ceremonial entrance to Arlington National Cemetery, a visit to the MWM includes an education center, interactive exhibitions, stories from women veterans, and engaging events. 

“It is imperative that we do our due diligence for the women veterans who came before us and worked for years to have this Memorial built by embracing new generations of military women and ensuring that our stories are forever captured in American history,” said Memorial President Phyllis Wilson. “Not only do we have to reach the 2.7 million military women who do not have their stories and military service captured in our database, but we must also educate the public on the legacy of these brave women, who have often been trailblazers for workplace equality.”
