The Women in Military Service for America Memorial serves as a gateway to Arlington National Cemetery. The Visitors Center is located here and is a resource for maps and guidebooks. The memorial has indoor exhibits that showcase the roles women have played in America's military history. There are film presentations, a 196-seat theater, and a Hall of Honor which provides recognition to women who died in service, were prisoners of war or were recipients of awards for service and bravery.

The Women in Military Service for America Memorial is located at the end of Memorial Drive directly across Memorial Bridge from the Lincoln Memorial. The memorial is easily accessible from the Arlington Cemetery Metro stop.
