The Vietnam Women's Memorial is a memorial dedicated to the women of the United States who served in the Vietnam War, most of whom were nurses. It serves as a reminder of the importance of women in the conflict.  Situated on the grounds of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, it is the first memorial placed in the nation's capital honoring women's military service. This emotional sculpture depicts three women, one caring for a soldier. The monument was designed by Glenna Goodacre, and was unveiled on Veterans Day, November 11, 1993. This monument is the culmination of a ten year grass roots effort honoring the 265.500 American women who served around the world during the Vietnam war.
