World-renowned sculptor Elizabeth MacQueen has been selected to design, create and oversee the installation of our first monument to women veterans. And, to accommodate the magnitude of this project, the artist has relocated her studio to Pensacola, Florida to be near the heart of the largest per capita military population in the country.

Already in its initial design phase, the monument will reach up to 50 ft. in height with flames, water, a laser beam and figures of servicewomen (scaled to one-and-a-half times life-size) located around an elliptical bronze and stainless masterpiece that will tell the history, both literally and figuratively, of women in service. It will capture women in uniform serving in their many capacities as they have risen to the challenge, despite many adversities, to serve their country.
Female Korean War Veteran, Barbara Regan, has donated property on Bayfront Drive in Pensacola, FL to be the site for the Monument to Women Veterans and a groundbreaking ceremony was held there in November, 2011.
