This is one of the best memorials I have seen. And who would have expected it in WV. If you are in the area this is a must see. WV is unique- I sincerely hope they revive tourism in this state.

Located close to the WV State Capital this memorial is very well done. It's like a history capsule of WV's contributions to America's continuing struggle for Freedom. The details on the statutes are exceptional.

This memorial was very well thought out and instills a sense of pride when you walk through and read the names listed on the walls. I highly recommend stopping in and seeing this sight.

West Virginia did it right when they decided to honor their veterans!. The memorial is impressive from every angle and pays tribute to all the West Virginians who have served and especially to those who died. The memorial is located on the State Capitol grounds near the WV Cultural Center.

I grew up just outside DC and now live in Kentucky. I would expect to see the type of memorial that West Virginia has as something that might be in D.C. (just on a little grander scale). I did not expect to see something like it in West Virginia. Kentucky has some nice memorials too, but nothing like this that... More

We were passing through Charleston and decided to stop to show our kids the capitol building. Pleasantly surprised to see the West Virginia Veterans Memorial. What an outstanding tribute to those who fought for our freedom! The statues representing the different wars had great detail and the names of those who died on the memorial reminds us of how many...

Beautiful memorial! Stopped here for a brief moment after my son's eye appointment to let him see it. He absolutely loved it! I can't wait to return with the rest of my children!

I visited this while on the grounds of the state capitol. It lists every veteran from West Virginia to die in the wars since World War I. Very beautiful.
