About Veterans Day

Veterans Day First started as a celebration of the end of WWI. This day has since become a time set aside to honor all American veterans. Originally, it was called Armistice Day and was celebrated for the first time on November 11, 1919 – exactly one year to the day after the shooting stopped in Europe. To mark the moment, churches held special services and soldiers paraded. People across the country observed two minutes of silence in remembrance of soldiers who had lost their lives. Similar ceremonies were held in England and France.

About the Military Women's Memorial

The Military Women’s Memorial is the only historical repository documenting the service of all women who’ve served in and with the nation’s military, beginning with the American Revolution. Located at the ceremonial entrance to Arlington National Cemetery, it features an education center, innovative and interactive exhibitions, a world-class collection of military women’s stories and artifacts, and engaging programs and events for all generations.

The year 2022 commemorates the twenty-five years since the Military Women’s Memorial was dedicated and opened to the public on October 18, 1997 – still America’s only major memorial to honor and tell the stories of all of the nation’s women who have served in and with our military, beginning with the American Revolution.
