Dear Cleburne et al.,

Although not specifically meant for soldiers, there is a very large monument to the women of the CW in Washington, D. C., but most are clueless. Any guess as to what or where it might be?

Then there is the Women's Military Memorial in Arlington, dedicated to all military women and the Vietnam nurses' memorial near the Korean Memorial.

Again, my first priority would be getting a couple of women medaled: Mary Bickerdyke, Sanitary Commission, not sure what as she was not in the military per se, although perhaps her stint as matron of Gayoso Hospital in Memphis would make her a civilian employee, therefore eligible for ?; and Annie Etheridge, as noted above.
