  • It is in the square and honors the health professionals who worked in the war. The statues are beautiful, a true work of art. It's worth the visit.

  • Memorial was nice but it was out of the way and off the “beaten path” that if we weren’t looking for shade, we would have passed it by.  more »

  • A monument dedicated to the women who were there, trying to help the soldiers in need. Very peaceful, nearby to the Three Servicemen Statue and the Vietnam War Veterans Memorial. The names of the three women are Hope, Faith, and Charity. See if you can guess who is who, by looking at the expressions on the faces and what they're doing.
  • This is a very strong memorial to the women that served in Vietnam which depicts three life size female nurses tending a wounded soldier. With the majority of women being nurses during the war but not all the women in Vietnam were from the military services the vast majority were civilians that volunteered. They served with various organizations that were there to support the various military services like the Red Cross, United Service Organizations, Catholic Relief Services and other humanitarian organizations and news correspondents. **** With very few statues depicting woman in history this is a change and should continue being something that there should be more of around the country.
