ARLINGTON, Va. — More than 1,000 female service members plan to gather for a commemoration and candlelight march to mark the 15th anniversary of a memorial honoring military women at Arlington National Cemetery.

Organizers say the ceremony begins at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Women in Military Service for America Memorial. It will include officials from the memorial, the Pentagon and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

There will also be a candlelight march to honor service women who have died in military conflicts over the past five years. The group will march from the Lincoln Memorial across the Memorial Bridge to the women’s memorial at Arlington. The march begins at 6:45 p.m. Saturday.

Organizers say 53 fallen service women will be honored during a ceremony at the memorial at the end of the march.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 15:59 PM.
