“Worth Stopping To See Capitol Building and Memorial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

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 have died for our country, thus making the ultimate sacrifice.

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!

“Unique Memorial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

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.

“a beautiful tribute to those most deserving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

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 this truly does honor ALL that serve.
