The Milwaukee Chapter of the Service Star Legion was organized in 1921. The group was organized to do "patriotic work" and were "brought into existence as a direct result of the storm and stress of war . . . for the women who lived through the long days of dread and anxiety, who with valiant courage bade goodbye and God speed to the boys, but who dared not look into the future, must have a sympathy and understanding and a desire to be of service and the opportunity to render service is open to them through the work in these [Service Star Legion] chapters".


The marker is directly behind the George Washington Statue.
