The Military Women’s Memorial is a living memorial, and at its heart is the Register. The Register is a database storing all the stories of servicewomen who decided to preserve their part of history here with us. Any women, of any rank, in any branch, who served her country deserves her spot in our nation’s history, and their stories can all be saved with WIMSA in our Register. Currently, over 250,000 women are registered with WIMSA, which is around 10% of the women who have served in our nation’s history.
Each servicewoman submits their information either online or at the Memorial, and our Register Department at the Foundation’s office inputs that information into our database. As a Data Entry Assistant at the Foundation, volunteers will be helping the Registration team to input information about registrations, donations, and various transactions into our new database. We need your help to ensure that the stories we hold of women’s service are clear, accurate, and reflect the importance of their contributions to history.

The Women In Military Service For America Memorial, at the Ceremonial Entrance to Arlington National Cemetery, is the only major national memorial honoring all women who have defended America throughout history. Their patriotism and bravery are a part of our nation’s heritage and are now recognized.
