The Vietnam Women’s Memorial is one of those hidden, undiscovered memorials on the National Mall that is still just as important as ones the grace the cover of magazines. This memorial is dedicated to the women who served as nurses, treating the wounded during the Vietnam War. The statue depicts three nurses tending to a wounded soldier, and the set up nestled in an alcove of trees is really striking.
The memorial was designed by Glenda Goodacre and was dedicated in 1993. Located just a short walk from the Vietnam War Memorial, it is part of the larger memorial grounds that also includes the Three Soldiers Memorial. At night a quartet of lamps bathe the memorial in light creating a stunning and striking place to visit. It’s certainly worth a visit to remember the importance women played, and continue to play, in the Armed Forces.
