The Veterans Memorial is a wonderful memorial to those who sacrificed everything during our nation's conflicts. This is well worth spending an hour or so at. Parking is convenient here, and it is well worth walking around the site, and looking at all angles of...More

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.

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
