ARLINGTON, Va. –The Military Women’s Memorial and Community Building Art Works will unveil for the first time More Than One Story, a collaborative performance created by nine military women who share their stories through poetry. This event will take place at the Military Women’s Memorial, located at the gateway to Arlington National Cemetery, July 10 at 1 p.m. EST.

More Than One Story collectively reveals the journey of these nine military women. The women they were, the women they are becoming, and the women who will follow the trail they blazed.

A reception will be held for invited guests after the poem’s unveiling.  We look forward to coming together as a community and meeting the women who contributed their voices to this poem.

If you are unable to attend in person we encourage you to register to view this special event virtually.

This program is part of a larger “Summer With The Arts: Healing, Freedom, Family” series hosted at the Military Women’s Memorial that includes powerful and compelling exhibits by women veteran artists; storytelling, poetry, and comedy workshops; and virtual programs focused around the whole-person and integrated wellness.
