I'm not a Veteran, nor a Veteran memorial buff. But this monument is just stunning. We stopped in after visiting the WV State Museum, and after stepping inside, we stopped talking. We found ourselves touching the names and reflecting on the sacrifices made. We even...More

We stopped by to see the Capitol, and we were captivated by the Veterans Memorial. There are four sections - WW1, WW2, Korea, and Viet Nam. It is beautifully and tastefully presented.

This is a nice, relaxing area to stop and take in the views after walking around the museum and/or capital. The grass is cut nicely, the scenery is clean and welcoming and overall a nice place to take a rest. Would recommend stopping.

Located on the capitol grounds, it's a must see in Charleston. Honors veterans of all wars from West Virginia in a perfect, reflective setting. Close to parking.

This is a very well presented and respectful monument. As a retired veteran I expect my fallen comrades to to be respected. I have visited Arlington as well as Punchbowl and this monument would not be out of place at either site.
