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.

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.

The monument, found on the state capitol grounds, recognizes each conflict our military has served, one in which we find that a large percentage of WV soldiers have taken part to defend and protect our country. There is a statue representing each branch of the military, and most recently, a female soldier has been added to the complex so that... More
