The granite statue of a nurse in uniform, sculptured by Frances Rich, honors the nurses who served in the U.S. armed forces in World War I, many of whom rest among the hundreds of nurses buried in Section 21 -- also called the "Nurses Section."
The inscription, in raised letters, on the plaque reads:
This Monument Was Erected in 1938
and Rededicated in 1971
To Commemorate Devoted Service
To Country and Humanity By
Army, Navy, and Air Force Nurses
