This is well worth browsing around. It is very informative and really makes you think about what Americans sacrifice every day for our freedom.

This is worth a visit in Richmond. Very nice, clean facility with a lot of history. The one comment I do have is although they are keeping up on the grounds, I wish they would have kept up with the ware memorial itself.

I did not expect to see such a wonderful st of monuments and some fantastic homes, The city is very proud of these people to whom the monuments are dedicated and justifiably so. Well done.

I would recommend visiting this memorial once during day time and once during evening/night time. I visited this more than an year back and had no trouble finding parking.

This memorial is on a very high hill. If walking be sure you bring water. Of course you can drive and park there too. I really liked that this is a memorial to all soldiers from all wars.

Since the expansion there is lots to see. Family Friendly, Gift shop and lots of history to learn. Staff is there to help. Not only a bit of our Military History but a beautiful spot over looking the James River and parts of the city.
