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.

Kids were asking a lot of questions about this display. My Husband who is former military was able to educate our children on the importance of it.

My daughter is a history buff and was interested in stopping at this memorial. It is beautiful and worth the stop. It is a somber experience but an important one.

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.

This memorial is a stunning, but peaceful, reminder of the service from four wars: Vietnam, Korea, and both World Wars. In the middle of the four sections, there are walls with the inscribed names of every casualty from that particular war. Quite a tribute to...More

Well done memorial. Including names of the fallen from Iraq, Dessert Storm and Afghanistan. The grounds around the memorial are well groomed.

These are out on a grassy knoll and lovely to stroll around and see during your visit to the area. Unexpected surprise!
