Category:Women in Military Service for America Memorial

The Women in Military Service for America Memorial is on the grounds of the George Washington Memorial Parkway. Although the memorial appears to be part of the ceremonial entrance to Arlington National Cemetery, it is not; its 4.2-acre site at the entrance of the cemetery is National Park Service land. The structure in which the memorial is housed was originally known as the Hemicycle, a ceremonial entrance to the cemetery that was built in 1932 but never never served this purpose. The semicircular structure was in disrepair when Congress approved the WIMSA memorial in 1985, and the Hemicycle was approved as the site in 1988. The Women in Military Service for America Memorial opened in October 1997.
