OPERATION WELCOME HOME | MAY 2023
May 11th –13th, 2023
The National Mall, Washington, DC
The Military Women’s Memorial (MWM), America’s only major memorial to honor all the nation’s servicewomen, is honored to be an active partner in the 50th Anniversary Commemoration of the Vietnam War.
Since 1997, we have proudly honored and told the stories of those women who served in Vietnam. Our exhibit gallery, chronicling the history of women’s service, features a major exhibition on women’s Vietnam-era service and has welcomed several million visitors to learn about these heroes. Our archive hosts the world’s largest collection of artifacts related to women’s service. With our robust oral history collection, research library, and repository of more than 306,000 women’s records of service, MWM is the premier resource for researchers, scholars, and educators, and is rich with servicewomen’s Vietnam-related items.
MWM invites Vietnam Veterans and guests, and members of the public throughout the 50th Commemoration to visit the Memorial and MWM tent at Camp Legacy to learn more about women’s service during the Vietnam War era; take part in Memorial exhibits & tours, a panel discussion, film screenings; and learn more about the contributions and service of the some 265,000 women who served during the era.
MWM will be encouraging visitors to help servicewomen, living and deceased, take their rightful place in history by registering their service with the Memorial and adding their story of service to the rich, collective history of women’s service to the nation.
