ARLINGTON, Va. — A new sculpture honoring military women and military working dogs is being unveiled outside Arlington National Cemetery.

The life-size bronze sculpture called “The Pledge” is being placed at the Women In Military Service For America Memorial, located at Arlington National Cemetery’s entrance.

The sculpture shows a female service member kneeling to meet her working dog.

The sculpture by artist Susan Bahary was commissioned by the U.S. War Dogs Association National Headquarters.
