Military Women's Corridor

At the Pentagon, you'll find the Military Women's Corridor, a corridor of the Pentagon devoted to the women who fought and assisted the military during our nation's wars. A replica of the Vietnam Women's Memorial, biographies and personal belongings contribute to the exhibit.

Special attention is given to Dr. Mary E.Walker and Rear Admiral Grace Hopper. Walker, a Civil War battlefield surgeon, is the only woman recipient of the Medal of Honor. Among many other accomplishments, Hopper is recognized as the computer genius and mathematician who created the COBOL computer language.
