This elegant white granite statue of a nurse looks out over the Nurses section of Arlington National Cemetery where 653 Nurses lie. Originally erected in 1938 to honor Army Nurses from World War I, the monument was rededicated in 1971 to honor all Nurses who have served the American military in all wars including the Spanish-American War. The current bronze plaque states "To Commemorate Devoted Service to Country and Humanity by Army, Navy and Air Force Nurses."
